THE LYIN' KING: Cops End One-Man Show On Broadway

An off-duty Chicago Fire Department employee called 911 shortly before 10PM last night to report that a male, black, wearing a green shirt and beige pants was harassing people as they passed the intersection of Broadway and Buckingham.

Ten minutes later, an anonymous 911 caller reported that a male, black, 6’1″ tall, wearing a green polo shirt and khaki pants was telling passers-by at Broadway and Belmont that he had a gun. The caller did not see a gun.

Officers quickly found the man and took him into custody outside of the Salad House, 3176 N. Broadway, at 10:11PM.
