Chicago Man Takes Off with Someone Else's Running Car

Everett Mosely is accused of possessing a stolen car after leading cops in a chase from Evergreen Park to Chicago on New Year's Eve, according to a police report.

A Chicago man is accused of getting into a running car that didn't belong to him and leading police on a chase into the city.

Bail for Everett Mosley, 39, of the 3500 block of South State Street, was set at $50,000. He is charged with felony possession of a stolen vehicle and fleeing police.

A ‘95 Oldsmobile was reported stolen on Dec. 31 after it was left to warm up near the intersection of 91st and Kedzie with the keys in the ignition, according to an Evergreen Park report. Police said Mosley got into the vehicle and drove away.

Cops spotted him and the Oldsmobile near 64th and Western, according to the report. The vehicle went through the intersection at 63rd and Artesian and hit a fence in the 6200 block of Artesian. Mosley bailed out and took off on foot.

The squad car of a pursuing officer was struck by another vehicle during the incident, the report states. That officer followed the driver on foot.

Mosely was taken into custody in the 6200 block of Rockwell in Chicago. Officers from the Chicago Police Department assisted in the arrest. He is due on Jan. 23 in Bridgeview court.

@BertH no need to be technical and hyper-sensitive. Just stating a fact.
