Ticketed man backs into squad car
BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. -- Police in the Chicago suburb of Buffalo Grove say they are puzzled about why a man they had just ticketed for speeding suddenly backed up his car at high speed and ran it up onto their squad car.
Buffalo Grove Sergeant Scott Kristiansen says officers stopped 70-year-old Henry Raskin of Niles, Ill., late Friday morning for driving 58 mph in a 35 mph zone.
The officer wrote the ticket and returned to the car, and Raskin got ready to drive away. Except he went flying backward. Kristiansen said Raskin apparently was going to pull away at a high speed, and didn't realize he was in reverse.
No one was injured.
