Chi. Sun Times-Man Leaps From 3rd Floor To Avoid Child Support; Lives

Ronald "Boobie" McIntyre: Chicago Sun Times
(Story reported by Sun-Times Media Wire for the Chicago Sun-Times)

A Near North Side man who has a criminal record that includes 80 convictions and 14 arrests is hospitalized with two broken legs and other injuries after having jumped out of a third floor window to elude arrest on a warrant for unpaid child support.

Ronald “Boobie” McIntyre, 35, of the 1300 block of North Hudson Street, was wanted for failure to pay $5,979.66 in court-ordered support for his children, according to a release from the Cook County sheriff's office. Court records show he has been arrested 14 times and has 80 criminal convictions unrelated to this warrant. 

Deputies with the Cook County Sheriff’s Child Support Enforcement Unit attempted to take McIntyre into custody Tuesday afternoon.

When they arrived at a third-floor apartment where they heard he was staying, they announced their office and were greeted by a woman who said she didn’t know where he could be found, the release said. 

But she invited them inside and as they searched the premises, a juvenile pointed to a window. The deputies walked to that window, looked down and saw McIntyre lying on the ground below. Though it appeared he landed on grass, it was actually artificial turf covering concrete that he landed on.
