Pro Soccer Player Dodges Cops, Makes Slowest Getaway Ever Using Injury Cart
You really cant make this stuff up.
In todays WTF news, it appears Enner Valencia, a forward for the Ecuadorian national soccer team, actually used an injury cart to flee a soccer stadium while police chased after him.
The incident occurred during Ecuadors 3-0 World Cup qualifier win over Chile at the Estadio Olmpico Atahualpa in Quito, Ecuador.
According to reports, Valencia, who had an assist in thematch, owes roughly $17,000 in unpaid child support to his ex-wife, and police showed up at the stadium to apprehend him for questioning in the case.
This is apparently the third time police have tried to get to the Ecuadorian.
Valencia reportedly came off the field earlier in the match complaining of altitude sickness, and when he got wind of the police coming after him in Estadio Olmpico Atahualpa, the 26-year-old apparently used the injury cart to evade the cops in the slowest getaway ever.

Yeah, I dont speak fluent Spanish, but I know what increible means.
Somehow, and I say that because the police clearly appear to catch up with Valencia before he can actually leave the stadium, the Ecuadorian reportedly managed to dodge law enforcement once again and make it to a hospital.
The polices previous attempts at detaining Valencia reportedly failed because certain police officers didnt collaborate with [Valencias] detention, according to the forwards ex-wifes attorney.
Heres a video of cops reportedly trying to get to Enner Valencia as the Ecuador team bus arrived at the Olmpico before the match against Chile.

Enner, my man, maybe you should just pay the $17k? Something tells me you can definitely afford it, being a pro soccer player and all.
However, Valencias agent, Gonzalo Vargas, claims to have a signed order from a judge, overturning the order for the soccer stars arrest.

This story just keeps getting weirder. Honestly, I cant wait to see what the police try and do the fourth time around.
For those of you wondering, Ecuadors next game is Tuesday against Bolivia.
