On Friday night, 24-year-old Anthony Miranda of Chicago walked up to a car, pointed a gun at the driver, and told him to get out and give him some money.
Here’s what he didn’t know. The driver . . . who was only identified by his first name, Justin . . . is a mixed martial arts expert.
So the moment Anthony was distracted, Justin grabbed the gun and beat the hell out of Anthony. And during the struggle, Anthony reached for the gun, it went off . . . and he shot himself in the ankle.
He was hospitalized with several cuts and bruises on his face, and he’s looking at armed robbery and gun charges.
Here’s the Mugshot:

This is from a gas station in College Station. Really??? At the counter??? Is this as inappropriate as it seems to me?
Just wow. What a great take on Nothing Else Matters.
Well, this is tragic…but also hilarious. Santa was making his grand entrance at the mall in Palm Beach, Florida. He’s supposed to drop down to the ground floor from a rope and pulley system, but his beard gets caught and hilarity ensues. I mostly feel bad for the event host who is trying her best to get the crowd to sing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” instead of paying attention to the Snata dangling precariously above their heads.
