This Ain’t No Place to Be If You Planned on Bein’ a Star

Michael Davis says he was at a car wash in Shreveport, La., washing his car when a man approached, pointing a gun at him. “He said ‘give me your keys and your money,’ and I said ‘what’d you say?’” Davis was holding the high-pressure sprayer, so “I took the sprayer and just sprayed it right in his face.” His dashcam was running and captured the incident, showing Davis spraying the would-be robber with the power washer and forcing him to flee. Then a second man came on camera, attempting to grab the sprayer from Davis. “I heard his friend try to run and get my backside so I turned around and sprayed him and hit him and they took off running,” he said. Police are searching for the pair. (MS/KSLA Shreveport) ...Their criminal career is all washed up.
