You Can't Run but You Can Hide ?

George Bush?

Deputies in Orange County, Fla., are trying to track down a one-legged man who evaded authorities on foot.

Orange County Corrections
Deputies in Florida are trying to track down George Bush, a one-legged man who they say escaped on foot.The strange story began as a routine traffic stop on Sept. 14, when officers pulled over the suspect, George Bush, who is believed to be either 47 or 48 years old, according to

But the motorist sped off, reportedly driving recklessly through a residential community before smashing his car into a power pole.

Witnesses say police were chasing the driver when he nearly hit a group of children waiting for a school bus and crashed into a pole. But law enforcement officials say they called off their pursuit when the motorist began driving erratically.

After the crash -- which shut off electricity to several nearby homes -- Bush allegedly climbed out of his vehicle and made his way into a wooded area, giving authorities the slip.

Later that day, deputies on horseback attempted to track the suspect, but according to the station, Bush's whereabouts remain unknown.

It's also unclear why Bush fled in the first place.

This is a real story that may or may not be funny to some but I found it to be a stitch!! Since I couldn't find any good photos of a guy with one leg I thought I might as well have some fun with it too!!

      I think the cops should check out a property in Texas called Prairie Chapel (I think it's in Mclennan County) - they might find the man without a leg to stand on there!

      Hilarious story, thanks for this one. I will remember it, espcially for the single chicken leg, LOL!

      Love and peace

      M-m-m, No comments on such an hilarious story!! So what have you done here, Tom? There can't be that many Bush fans here on HUBpages, but maybe!!!! Not touching that hub with a ten foot bush. One in the leg, two in the bush. Man, a one legged bushwhacker! Hey, George, you don't have a leg to stand on. Oops, yes you got one!

      Mr. President, did you hear the story.....Uh, Mr. President, what happened to your other leg?...Well George got a leg up on the cops, evidently. Well, I could go on and on and perhaps better stop while I am aleg!!

      Thanks for a very interesting hub! Got to learn to stand on your own one foot.

      Take care, Tom
