During a broadcast of the Dr. Who episode "Horror of Fang Rock" on WTTW Chicago Channel 11, on Sunday November 22nd, 1987, at around 11:15pm, a Video "Pirate" wearing a Max Headroom mask broke into the signal and transmitted one of the weirdest, unauthorized things ever to hit the Chicago airwaves.
Earlier in the evening on the same day, during the Nine O'Clock News on Channel 9 (Yes, a completely different channel) the Max Headroom Pirate also broke in - although it was for a much shorter time and there was no audio.
Needless to say, Dan Rohn (the sports reporter) was a bit flustered.
And no, he was never caught.

This embarrassing blunder left passers-by red-faced in London's Leicester Square moments before the Hancock premiere last night.
Scaffolders appeared to spell the name of the superhero film backwards, erecting the last four letters before the first three were mounted.
This meant that just as it was time for a fag break, the only letters in place rudely spelt out c**k providing plenty of giggles for the labourers.
You'd have thought they would start at the front.
