(NEWSER) – A drug suspect fleeing cops in Chicago didn't get very far into what could have been a 14-mile run for it.
Police say Bryan Duffy, 29, was seen acting suspiciously among spectators around Mile 12 of the Chicago Marathon route on Sunday and took off when he saw police, trying to blend in with marathon runners, reports the Chicago Tribune. Duffy was tackled by police officers, who found he was carrying 10 Ecstasy tablets in an Altoids box, ABC7 reports. He now faces charges of resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance as well as a reckless conduct charge for endangering marathon runners.
