It's not easy being a Bears fan: there's the deeply suspect Draft Day calls, the reemerging specter of Jay Cutler, and the documentary fishbowl-ing of our collective misery. But save some sympathy for the players, too, especially wide receiver Kevin White and his girlfriend.

White reportedly lost his Maserati when carjackers stole his luxury ride while his girlfriend was at the wheel. The carjackers used a technique known as "bump and run" or "bumper tapping"—which have been on the rise in the city, according to NBC Chicago.

At the time of the carjacking, White's girlfriend, 26, was alone in the car—which, as Yahoo points out, appears to be one of the the first big-splash purchases made by the receiver after he was drafted in the first round, in 2015. The car was reportedly rear-ended at a stop sign on Thursday in 400 block of North May Street in West Town near Fulton market at around 6:30 p.m. Thieves stole the car when White's girlfriend got out to inspect for damage.

No one is in custody as of Friday morning; and police are urging drivers to not leave their car running if they step out after a rear-ending.
