Kevin White’s Maserati car-jacked in Chicago

Bears wide receiver Kevin White has had a hard time getting on the field.

Now, he’s going to have a hard time getting anywhere, since his car was stolen.

According to NBC Chicago, a Maserati being driven by White’s girlfriend was stolen as part of a series of carjackings there.

Thieves ran into the back of the car at a stop sign, and when White’s girlfriend got out of the car, the two men jumped into it and took off. The “bumper-tapping” tactic has been reported in a number of car thefts over the last month.

The 2015 first-round pick wasn’t on the scene when it happened.

He has been limited to just four games and 19 catches in two seasons, after a series of leg injuries, but the Bears are hopeful he’ll bounce back and become a contributor.

    This dude is straight cursed. Please get him off my team as soon as possible.

    When he’s out of the league and broke, we’ll get sob stories about the league not doing enough for retired players. There’s nothing you can do for the brain-dead.

    This kind of behavior is to be expected in or around the City of Chicago. The town is devolving into a cesspool of despondence.

  6. joetoronto says: May 12, 2017 12:41 PM

    There sure is a lot of crime in Chicago for a “sanctuary city”.

    markbul sounds jealous. And poor. Mostly jealous.

    How long until players start demanding a premium to play in Chiraq?

  10. gotham23 says: May 12, 2017 12:51 PM

    She got out and left it running with the keys in the car? Idiot.

  11. johnqlunchbox says: May 12, 2017 12:53 PM

    Had to rack my brain for awhile to remember who Kevin White even was. He sure has mad bank for a dude who has caught only 19 more passes in the NFL than I have…

  12. Stiller43 says: May 12, 2017 12:56 PM

    Why is he driving a Maserati in the first place? Judging by his play, he’ll have to make his rookie contract last a LONG time.

    If Obama had a son….

  14. lgw91s says: May 12, 2017 12:58 PM

    Never find it. Slap on a new coat of paint and nobody will spot a Maserati. They’re everywhere.

    Don’t worry, Trump is gonna bring in the troops to fix Chicago….

    If he has a nice car in Chicago he’ll probably get carjacked.
    ====================================

    I posted the above quote this morning in the article about Trubisky driving a ’97 Camry. Nailed it!

    Good thing he was not with her……he would have tripped getting out of the car and hurt his leg. He then would have been out for the season. Kevin White yet another bust pick for the Chicago Bears dumpster fire.

  18. casualmalexlfan says: May 12, 2017 1:11 PM

    At least he wasn’t hurt.

    Mayor Emmanuel is doing a hell of a job in Chicago (NOT).

    What about this story makes Kevin White brain dead? You mad cause he’s got a Maserati and you don’t?

  21. kcflake says: May 12, 2017 1:19 PM

    Mr. White can thank Mayor Emmanuel.

  22. docraider says: May 12, 2017 1:24 PM

    In Chicago?? Can’t be ?

  23. walker1191 says: May 12, 2017 1:27 PM

    If you drive a Maserati you have to expect this sort of thing 4 or 5 times a year.

  24. factschecker says: May 12, 2017 1:33 PM

    LOL. People making a story about auto theft into a political statement. That’s seems normal (eye roll).

  25. deathmonkey41 says: May 12, 2017 1:42 PM

    On the bright side, they have some of the strictest gun laws in the country.

  26. agbnewfoundlaw says: May 12, 2017 1:44 PM

    That being Chicago I guess she / he should be happy she wasn’t shot at the same time

  27. stoneydog1000 says: May 12, 2017 1:46 PM

    Thank god she wasn’t driving Pacman’s Rolls-Royce or she would have gotten an ear full.

  28. leroysbutler says: May 12, 2017 1:56 PM

    How about catching a pass before you start driving around in a Maserati.

    It sucks though. He is a really good kid, and just seems snakebitten in Chicago. I hope he can get it turned around this season. But if not, he won’t make it through his rookie contract.

    Trump needs to send the tanks into the west and south sides of Chicago. Nothing but an endless breeding ground for criminals and breeders of more criminals and useless losers.

    They aren’t exactly super expensive compared to even a new diesel pick up.

    I see a lot of them around here and my town is literally 1/26th the size of Chicago.

  33. purpleguy says: May 12, 2017 2:22 PM

    If he’s letting his girlfriend drive around his Maserati, she must be very, very attractive.

  34. dawoger says: May 12, 2017 3:36 PM

    It’s all the gun’s fault. They fly up the butts of unsuspecting, totally responsible, perfectly behaved citizens and take control of their minds.

  35. donterrelli says: May 12, 2017 3:37 PM

    Driving a Maserati? Has he even caught a pass yet?

  36. coltsreign says: May 12, 2017 4:32 PM

    Love the choice for photo.

    ==================================

    Perhaps it’s because the crime rate in Chicago and a mayor worried more about hiding illegals has been national news.

  38. wolfgangvomframps says: May 12, 2017 4:55 PM

    Abninf,

    The crime rate in Chicago? Tell us about it. How does it rank among big cities?

    And “illegals”? Most of those undocumented workers know that in English, act are illegal. People are not illegal.

  39. firejerry says: May 12, 2017 4:57 PM

    It would be nice if you earned some of that money by catching a couple of passes and scoring a touchdown!!!!

  40. amaf21 says: May 12, 2017 7:51 PM

    Real classy trying to make light of this dg.
