    Security Guard Stops Shoplifter

    NW Ind. guard shoots theft suspect | IndyStar.com

    CHESTERTON, Ind. -- A man suspected of shoplifting hair-growth formula from a drug store was shot and wounded by a truck stop security guard following a high-speed chase in northwest Indiana.

    Police say 36-year-old Michael A. Holmes of Markham, Ill., faces several charges when he is released from the hospital.
    Police say Holmes had a woman and three children in his car Monday night as he led police on a chase at speeds of up to 100 mph from Chesterton to Gary.
    Holmes fled on foot after crashing the car. A security guard at the Dunes Truck Stop says he shot Holmes in the abdomen when Holmes reached for his gun.
    Holmes remained hospitalized this morning, but no information on his condition was available.
    Good for the security guard.

    Hair-growth formula? Woman(wife?) and three kids?!?

    What a wing-nut this dude is!

    Too bad he crashed it, 'cause momma's gonna need some hair coloring to hide the new growth of gray he just induced. To say nothing of the kids. Unknown what damage he caused to them.

    After all that, he then fled. Left his wife and kids in the car he just crashed, then fled on foot. It could have burst into flames and the could have had life-threatening injuries ... but he didn't know or care.

    Let's see: shoplifting; evading arrest; reckless endangerment (multiplied by the number of others he risked); child endangerment x3; leaving the scene of an "accident"; driving with his idiot mittens on.

    Dumb. Irresponsible. Disrespectful in the extreme. Life-threatening to a whole string of people from the store to the crash.

    I think it's safe to say that the $3.49 bottle of hair restorer is going to be the single most expensive product he's ever purchased.
