CHICAGO (CBS) — A disabled man who was evicted from his Edgewater apartment – over what he said was a simple misunderstanding – spent 24 hours in the cold, refusing to go to a shelter.
WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports 64-year-old James Roberts sat in his wheelchair on a sidewalk at Broadway and Ardmore Avenue. He was freezing, but was refusing to leave behind the belongings stacked around him.
“People were walking up, trying to take my property,” he said. “Right now, I’m trying to get somebody to put it in storage.”
