DUI suspect wants to hire Johnny Cochran

Figured someone might find this mildly amusing.

During a vigil held last night for a 2007 slaying victim, several shots rang out and police eventually stopped a man — 19 years old — who was driving away from the scene. As soon as he gets out of his car, he starts talking nonsense to the cops and says, “I wish I had enough money to hire Johnny Cochran to sue your asses.”  Um, Cochrane’s been dead since March 2005.

Anyway, turns out the man was arrested for DUI, and nothing related to the shooting. No one was hurt in the incident, by the way.  There will be a story in the paper tomorrow.
