Pro-tip: Do Not Go Film A Teevee Show At The Jail If You Are Actually Supposed To Be In Jail
It's nice to get a cool job working on teevee crews filming the one million gritty dramas based in Chicago: Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Chicago Animal Control, Chicago Meter Maid. But it is un-smart to head on over to the Cook County Jail to film a thing when you have outstanding warrants for your arrest.
We understand ignoring/dodging your existing warrant, because who among us has not lived a life on the lam, but it seems if you're going the dodging route, even your rudimentary life skills should prevent you from GOING TO THE JAIL VOLUNTARILY, even if you are helping film Terrance Howard's new show, "Empire," because jails tend to need to do intrusive things like check your ID and run rudimentary background checks to make sure you are not a criminal mastermind or bombmaker sneaking in with the film crew. Also, too, because warrant-checking at the door likely trips up some people not smart enough to forego visiting a pal in jail even though they also too should be in jail. Unlike in teevee, the criminal class is not generally composed of masterminds.
