Corrections officer shot and killed; suspect arrested after chase

tattooooofreaks.jpgI posted this guy’s picture before.

He killed a security guard and escaped, lead police on a high speed chase to an Arby’s, and was later recaptured.

Seriously, if you looked like this, is there any way for you to escape without being recognized?


A shooting Monday morning left one security guard dead. A suspect identified as 27-year-old Curtis Allgier led police on a high speed chase through Salt Lake. He was arrested at a Salt Lake City Arby’s restaurant after injuring two employees there.

The shooting happened at the University of Utah Orthopaedic Center on campus. The suspect was there for a medical appointment at 7:45 a.m.

Allgier was a prisoner who took a Department of Corrections security guard’s gun and shot him in the head.

Allgier then hijacked an SUV. There were people in the vehicle at the time, but they were not injured.

Allgier led police on a high-speed pursuit with speeds up to 100 miles an hour. He got on I-15, then headed north on I-215. Officers finally used spike strips to stop Allgier at an Arby’s restaurant at 1700 South Redwood Road.

Inside the restaurant, at least one person was shot and injured by Allgier but was able to walk out, said Salt Lake City police Sgt. Rich Brede. A second Arby’s employee was also treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Allgier was not armed when he was captured inside the manager’s office, Brede said.

    He looks like he gained some weight. Seems that’s what happens these days if you go to jail or prison.

    It’s almost like he is destined to live a life of crime. I mean where did he think he was going to get a legit job with that all over his face??

    If I were to escape from prison, and had been living off of prison slop, I'd want some good fast food, too. Which is why I can't for the life of me figure out why he was at an Arby's.
