The questions that arise from this story are endless… How is this guy running through the neighborhood evading cops? Not to mention the fact that  he was able to scurry away behind a tree after being tackled…Granted he probably had weird intentions, but this all stemmed from a harmless arm sniff. Also, I’m surprised to hear the new opener is asking to show off your gang tats…

  1. Can you imagine what it smells like under his neck? Especially after “scurrying away” from the fuzz.
