Tuomo Ruutu Misidentified as Robber...Doesn't Get Hurt in Process

From The Daily Herald

That's Blackhawks forward Tuomo Ruutu there. After practice today, he decided to go for a jog at a local arena, you know, get some extra conditioning in there, maybe not find himself on the injured-reserve list again in his career. That's when things got hairy,"

"The reported crime happened about 11:50 a.m. Tuesday at the Brentwood Apartments, 630 E. George St., when a man displaying a handgun entered the building's office, said Linda Dickson, Bensenville's director of communications.

The man demanded cash from the rental manager, then searched the office's safe, Dickson said.

When he discovered the safe contained no money, the man left the building and was last seen running east, Dickson said.

The manager said the suspect was wearing a black jacket, black hat and pants and was about 6 feet tall.

...Ruutu happened to be wearing his black team sweat suit and a black knit hat."

Luckily for the Finnish forward, a witness came to his aid and told police that he was indeed, not the suspect they were looking for. Ruutu was then released from the back of the police car that he had been detained in.

Ballhype: hype it up!
