According to WBBM.com Nahshon Shelton didn’t want to pay the 22-cent tax on his $1.79 two-liter of Pepsi on Saturday afternoon.
So he allegedly pulled a blue-steel Intratec .22-caliber submachine gun out of his Gucci satchel inside the convenience store in the 4000 block of West Madison Street where they tried to make him pay it — and he threatened to kill everyone there, a prosecutor said.
This “is my neighborhood, I’m tax exempt!” he would later allegedly tell the cops, the Sun-Times is reporting. “Man, you know what, I’ll keep it real. I had to put them in their place.”
Shelton, 36, of the 4200 block of West Carroll, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and having an invalid FOID card.
Cook County Judge Peggy Chiampas ordered Shelton held without bail Sunday for the incident that allegedly took place around 1:45 p.m.
Assistant State’s Attorney Claire Savaglio said police saw Shelton yelling at the victims when they answered a report of a man with a gun there.
“I’m going to shoot you in the head three times,” Shelton allegedly told one person.
“I’m going to smoke your ass,” he allegedly told another.

The man was identified as Davy Easterling by the Cook County medical examiner’s office Sunday.
Easterling was found in an apartment about 6 a.m. Friday in the 8300 block of South Baker Avenue.

The lawsuit claims police in an unmarked squad car pulled over the
three plaintiffs -- two men and one women -- after the officers drove
the wrong way down a one-way street, the Sun-Times reports.
The group of three -- 26-year-old Caprice Halley, 20-year-old Tevin
Ford and 19-year-old Robert Douglas, who was since killed in a shooting
-- were subsequently searched for drugs and one of the men was forced to
strip naked in a nearby gangway, the lawsuit claims. The woman, Halley,
was allegedly forced to remove her pants and a tampon by the only
female officer at the scene while other officers at the scene commented
about her body in an incident not seen on the video.
More and more people are getting in trouble for things they do on social networking site...smh be careful people!
According to CBS.COM A man's advice of “Don’t get mad — get even” is really not what you should do.
A suburban man didn't like the outcome after he contested a parking
ticket with the city, so he posted a violent screed to YouTube
threatening the life of a city hearing officer, county prosecutors said.
Michael Dixon, 40, of Country Club Hills, posted the 11-minute video
to YouTube on Jan. 14, then mailed his hearing officer a letter
directing him to the video, prosecutors said Thursday.
The video, posted by an account called Voice from Chicago, features a
man with his face obscured talking about the details of a $50 ticket he
received after parking on Milwaukee Avenue.
The speech, attributed to
Dixon in court records, contains racist and homophobic language and is
riddled with profanity. The man in the video asks viewers to blow up the
city's administrative hearings building, affix an explosive to the
man's car, and also to attack other hearing officers and parking meter
enforcement aides, prosecutors said.
"You better check your car every time you come out," the man in the video says, naming the hearing officer. "The victim is rightfully frightened for his safety," county prosecutor Lorraine Scaduto said in bond court Thursday afternoon.
Dixon was arrested at home on Wednesday and charged with threatening a
public official. He was brought to the Cook County Leighton Criminal
Courthouse on Thursday afternoon and ordered held in lieu of $150,000

Ive always wanted to get out my car and toss those chairs "saving" parking spots... finally somebody did! According to K-HITS Chicago someone has been going from neighborhood to neighborhood and taking “dibs” chairs — chairs saving parking spots for people — from saved spots.
This guy took his thievery one step further by posting a Craigslist ad(UPDATE: Craigslist has deleted the post) in an attempt to sell the many, many chairs they’ve collected (they claim to have collected about 350 chairs).
“In driving around the Northside these past few days I’m seeing hundreds of chairs being abandoned on the streets. I’ve collected about 350 various chairs… I’m selling each chair for $5, regardless of condition or smell.”
Calling dibs on parking spots with lawn chairs and other items is a tradition unique to Chicago that goes back decade
According to CBS A CBS 2 viewer was startled to see large groups of Chicago police officers watching Bears games at a suburban bar, so he contacted the 2 Investigators to see what was going on.

According to his email, “When the Chicago Bears play, the restaurant fills up with plain cloths [sic] tactical officers … no wonder why people are being shot, 25 officers in restaurant for 3 hours. Full story Here

Accoding to XXL Cash Money Records, which has a roster of musicians including Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj, has filed a legal request to trademark the name Visionaire Sports Group.
XXL sites these government documents as proof of Cash Money Records' intentions. According to Thepostgame.com,Cash Money Records may have been encouraged by Jay-Z, who has had remarkable success over the past year as a sports agent. Not only has his agency, Roc Nation, signed some of the top players in their respective sports (Robinson Cano, Kevin Durant, Victor Cruz and Skylar Diggins among them), Jay-Z helped Cano secure the third largest contract in MLB history.
Jay-Z wasn't the first rapper to jump into sports. Master P founded No Limit Sports in 1999 and represented Paul Pierce, Ricky Williams and Ron Mercer.
