Driver Crashes Car, Jumps Into Other Car Through Window

CHICAGO (STMW) — A speeding motorist high on marijuana and angel dust dived head-first into a shocked stranger’s car through the driver’s side window, then bizarrely yelled to chasing cops that “the pancakes are on the floor,” authorities say.

Charles Farris, 21, was spotted by police weaving in and out of traffic on the 4300 block of West Division Friday afternoon, prosecutors say.

He ran a red light, hit a stopped car and crashed into a fence, before running to another stopped car and jumping in through the driver’s side window, it’s alleged.

Police arrested him after he made his strange reference to pancakes, according to the report. Though “pancakes” can be used as street slang to refer to crack cocaine, cash or a woman’s breasts, it wasn’t clear from the report what Farris meant.

He tested positive for marijuana and PCP following his arrest, prosecutors said.

Charged with two counts of aggravated DUI, aggravated reckless driving, resisting arrest, leaving the scene of a crime and a laundry list of traffic offenses, Farris, of the 1300 block of North Lockwood, was ordered held on bail of $50,000 Sunday.
