The real 'Forrest Gump' stopped by police in Elm Grove

July 6, 2010

Run, Louis, run.

Elm Grove police stopped a 43-year-old Tucson, Ariz., man at Blue Mound Road at Hi View Court at 3:19 p.m. June 29 because he had been walking in the bus lane. A car had been following him with its flashers on.

It turns out that the man, Louis Figueroa, was the inspiration behind the 7,500-mile, cross-country trek in the movie "Forrest Gump."

He apparently is at it again as media reports say Figueroa is embarking another trek across America to raise awareness about childhood sexual abuse and the protection of children.

Elm Grove police notified Brookfield police. Figueroa was making his way along Blue Mound Road toward I-94.
