No Good Deed Goes Unpunished.

Woman awarded $7.7 million for false arrest -- chicagotribune.com She witnessed a car hit a Chicago squad car. She pulled a dazed officer from the wreck.
She pulled Brogan from the wreckage. Soon after, police approached Jackson and told her that the driver's weapon had been stolen.
She was arrested and spent 10 months in jail, until the case was thrown out. (What, they needed evidence?)

The moral of the story would seem to be, if you ever see a Chicago cop in a (burning?) wrecked car, walk on by.
