Crime Wire

UptownFelipesQL.pngThis afternoon, a customer tried to pay for his meal at Felipe's Uptown with a counterfeit $50 bill, and ended up dragging an employee with his car while another shot at him with a gun. Quoth the Uptown Messenger on the absurd crime: "Several employees followed [the fleeing counterfeiter], and one tried to grab the customer's car as it was pulling away, but the vehicle instead began dragging the employees (sic). At that point, another person from the store pulled a handgun and shot the vehicle several times." [UM]
