Criminal Flushed Out of Cornfield by Crazed, Bulletproof Vest Wearing Farmer.
Ok, maybe the farmer wasn't crazy. But, he sure did get an adrenaline rush. This morning, Lisa told you about the family that got lost in a corn maze and now we have a criminal who was intentionally trying to get lost in a cornfield.
After searching for hours in a cornfield for a criminal who was wanted on a parole violation, police in Kankakee, Illinois came up with another plan. They asked the farmer who owned the field if he was ready to harvest his crop. And ready he was.
So, fitted with a bulletproof vest, farmer Mark Tanner hopped into his combine and went to work. 90 minutes later, with his cover quickly disappearing, the 19 year old fugitive ran out of the cornfield with his hands up... directly in front of the sheriff's office. ahhh shucks!
