This story about the “hijacked” FBI SUV seems to have some additional details that were not initially reported. Apparently the FBI agent is “claiming” he was dragged by the vehicle in attempt to stop the culprit from taking the vehicle. However in the interim, there still has not been any indication as to how many weapons were inside the vehicle and where they are at the moment.
A 17-year old is on the hook for the alleged theft of the vehicle and the supposed assault charges against the FBI agent. Where is the injury report of the agent who claimed he was dragged by the vehicle and why is there not any video footage from the gas station of the incident?
Something is missing and the fix is in!!

A 17-year-old boy was charged Tuesday with several felonies after he allegedly stole an FBI SUV while it was parked on the Near West Side.
The boy, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, was charged with vehicular hijacking, aggravated battery of a government employee and unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle — all felonies, Chicago Police said.
About 12:10 a.m. Monday, a 32-year-old FBI agent left the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox “momentarily unattended with the engine running” at a service station in the 300 block of South Morgan, according to police and FBI spokesman John Althen.
Firearms and tactical gear, including a ballistic vest, were inside the vehicle, Althen said; he would not say precisely how many weapons, or what type.
A male suspect jumped in the SUV and began to drive away, police said. The agent tried to retrieve the SUV, and was dragged as the vehicle sped off. No injuries were reported.
The SUV was found at 7:21 p.m. Monday in the 900 block South Leavitt, about two blocks away from FBI offices, according to police.
The boy was taken into custody about 10:15 a.m. Tuesday in the 5000 block of West Washington Street in the Austin neighborhood.
