Lorain, it’s time we had a talk. What the hell is going on? You’ve been acting so strange lately, everyone’s talking about it. They blame it on the water, blame it on the economy, say the 440 is just plain crazy. But seriously, a screw's loose, friend. It's time to get some help . . .
This summer reading the Lorain police blotter has been like watching an endless Cops marathon. We’ve had women flash artists afoot on the streets, batshit-wild 15-year-olds, booze cruisin’ mommas, and violent spectacles aplenty. You want more? Well, how about drunk vigilante justice gone wrong?
According to The Morning Journal, 62-year-old Robert Oneal was sitting at home having a couple cold ones when he noticed someone sneaking around his house. He gave chase, hopping in his car and speeding after a vehicle he believed belonged to the snooper. He was wrong.
Oneal chased the car east on Meister Road, through laps of the parking lot at 7-Eleven, 3054 Leavitt Road, and south on Leavitt Road. When he caught up to the car on Leavitt Road, Oneal said he “played Rambo and rammed the car off the road,” causing it to drive through several lawns and hit a telephone pole, according to the report.
