Ben Carson, notably the only black man running for president, made a joke Wednesday afternoon about running away from the cops as a kid.
"Throwing rocks at cars, I really liked that," he said, describing his childhood. "Sometimes, the police would come, always in unmarked cars. And, they'd be chasing us across the field."
Carson said he would hop over 10-foot-tall fences, to run away from the police.
"Now, that was back in the days before they would shoot you," he said, laughing. The crowd joined in laughter.
