Did A Guy Try to Steal ABC7 News Crew Equipment While They Were Shooting a Story About Crime Prevention?!
Sometimes you cover the story. Sometimes you ARE the story!
I haven’t seen it being reported elsewhere, but the Twitter account @CWBChicago posted audio of a supposed 911-call of the event. They say that a news crew from ABC7 was downtown at a train station doing a story about beefed up security by Chicago Police after an uptick in crime on the CTA.
ABC7 sends a news crew to State & Chicago to do a report about the city’s CTA crime-fighting initiative and a guy tries to steal their equipment.#Chicago #ChicagoScanner

Wouldn’t you know it…a guy starts to harass the news crew and tries to steal their equipment! Take a listen to the 911 audio.
Just DRIPPING with irony, but we’re glad no one was hurt (I think…I hope!).
Apparently the cameras weren’t on yet as I haven’t seen any video.
