New York, USA
Michael Lucarelli runs from the media as he leaves the federal court building after posting bail in the Manhattan borough of New York in this August 26, 2014 file picture.
Outside the courthouse I was waiting for Lucarelli when a photographer friend from a local paper stopped by to chat and ask me what was going on, I told him it was a minor fraud case that we were covering. His paper wasn't interested in the case at all. A network TV crew was there covering another story.
Lucarelli looked out the door and saw the two photographers and a TV crew and thought they were all for him. He ducked back inside for a moment, then came back through the revolving door and took off at a full sprint. He ran away so fast that his sandals flew off his feet, which is what made the photo and caused the other media to run to the story. If he had just walked out, TV and the other photographer would have never sent their images. - Carlo Allegri REUTERS/Carlo Allegri (UNITED STATES - Tags: BUSINESS CRIME LAW TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)
