A Guy Ran from the Cops, Fell Through Ice, and Had to Be Rescued
You'd never get sentenced to death for breaking and entering. But this guy almost gave HIMSELF a death sentence . . .
A man and woman near Boston were caught stealing stuff from someone's house on Saturday afternoon, and packing it all into a U-Haul. We don't know the woman's name, but the guy is 30-year-old Joseph Kahler.
The owner of the house got home while they were still there, and saw Joseph walking through their yard toward the U-Haul, so they called the cops.
Police tracked them down nearby, and they fled on foot. They caught the woman, but Joe got away and started running toward a frozen river.
They eventually found him near a bridge. But he refused to surrender . . . ran out onto the ice . . . and FELL THROUGH.
He happened to be at a spot that wasn't that deep, so he could touch the bottom. But he couldn't get out, so they had to rescue him. They threw him a rope, but he wouldn't grab it. So a cop had to go get him.
It turned out the U-Haul itself was stolen, and he also had drugs on him. As an added bonus, they released his mugshot . . . and he appears to be YAWNING in it. (???) He's facing charges for breaking and entering, drug possession, and resisting arrest.
