Florida carjacking at gunpoint fails after man can’t drive stick shift
A man was arrested in Florida last week after his plot to steal a car was foiled by his inability to operate a manual transmission.Okay, now, maybe the reporting is incomplete, but it seems to me that there are a few charges missing. At the very least, he was carrying that firearm without a permit, as the age in Florida is 21. That's assuming the gun was legally owned by Mr. Bell and not stolen, and also that he is not an ineligible person. Secondly, "criminal mischief"??? He stuck a gun in someone's face and demanded their car. That's at least criminal threatening, if not attempted murder. It's certainly strongarm robbery. Maybe someone local (Paging the Pantsless One) can find more info on this story?
In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office said that 19-year-old Antoren “Chief Keef” Bell had been charged with theft, robbery and criminal mischief for an attempted May 18 carjacking.
It certainly seems as though "chief" is getting off light - well, until the other guys in jail learn he got caught because he can't drive stick...
That is all.
