    Woman ditches wheelchair, flees police

    Thursday, May 11, 2006; Posted: 8:19 p.m. EDT (00:19 GMT)

    LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- A wheelchair-bound Los Angeles woman, who has repeatedly filed lawsuits over access for the disabled, got up and ran after police arrested her for fraud, authorities said Thursday.

    Laura Lee Medley, 35, had sued in at least four California cities over injuries she claimed she sustained while trying to navigate her wheelchair before she was suspected of fraud.

    Medley, who claimed to be paralyzed from a drunk driving accident, was tracked to Las Vegas where police there took her into custody and then, when she complained of medical issues, to a local hospital, Long Beach prosecutor Belinda Mayes said.

    "She gets to the hospital and while she's waiting for an examination, she gets up from the chair and runs," Mayes said. "Somebody remarked, 'That's where the great miracle occurred.' "

    rest of story.

    OMG ! reminded of a guy where I used to live when CBs were first legally allowed in the UK in '81. He was in a wheel chair and went under the handle of " Whizz Wheels " - would often see him parked near the roadside jawing to people on the airways :lol:
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
