Incompetent Criminal II

Police in Bradenton, Fla., say Cedrick Mitchell, 39, barged into a room at the Royal Motel and asked the two men inside for pills. When they said they didn’t have any, he pulled a handgun from his waistband and demanded “everything you got,” according to police Capt. Warren Merriman. The men fought, and one of them pepper-sprayed Mitchell, who dropped his gun and fled. Then, the victims said, the robber came back and begged them to let him buy his gun back for $40. The victims’ response was to pepper-spray Mitchell again, and call 911. Police quickly caught up with Mitchell and arrested him. (MS/Bradenton Herald) ...And no, he can’t bail himself out for $40.
