And, finally, a direct quote:
“The plane was chalked on the ramp area while undergoing an engine run-up test. At some point, the plane jumped the chalks and ran into the hangar. There were three mechanics on the plane, but none was injured, the plane was not intended for flight,” FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said in a statement.
The correct spelling is chocks.

The pilot must have gotten a text message while taxiing. Texting and taxiing don't mix well.

While I'm normally 100% onboard with your thread silly wrabbit and I'm definately one to cross reference MSM with outside sources... via here! Today this morning on WGN News Channel 9 the reporters showed this picture and reported accurately, well I should say they didn't state a wing cliped the hanger as for the rest of the details... Well you know how the story goes
Good find either way on some shody reporting~
