Mike’s the Stupid News: Is This Florida Man the Worst Armed Robber Ever?
The worst armed robber in the world might just be Cedrick Mitchell of Bradenton, Florida. Mitchell barged into a hotel room Thursday of last week demanding that the occupants give him some pills. When they declined, he pulled a gun and told them to hand over “everything you got.”
They instead went with their own option: fight back. After a bit of a scuffle, they subdued Mitchell with pepper spray, causing him to drop his weapon. Mitchell took off, but after clearing his head and presumably the tears from his eyes, he returned in a more polite mood.
This time instead of demanding something, he offered the men 40 bucks for the return of his gun — only to receive a counter-offer of more pepper spray. Officers responding to a 911 call from the hotel room occupants arrested Mitchell a short distance away.
