    Uses gun to punch hole in windshield/drops gun in vic's lap

    I;m gonna go out on a limb here and guess there were drugs in his system...

    Robber accidentally drops gun in victim's lap, who turns it on him, Florida police say - OrlandoSentinel.com

    A robbery victim had a force on her side other than police: The force of gravity.

    One of two people trying to rob a 69-year-old woman in her car Friday night accidentally dropped his handgun into her lap. She grabbed the gun and turned it on the man, chasing him off, South Daytona police said.

    The suspect also dropped a cell phone, which held pictures that helped the woman identify her robber to police, they said.

    About 7 p.m. Friday, Carol J. Costello had just left the Walmart on Beville Road when a black Chevrolet Impala pulled in front and forced her to stop. A passenger armed with a silver semiautomatic handgun wrapped in a towel jumped out and tried to break the driver's-side window with the gun, police said.

    When that didn't work, he leaped onto the hood and smashed a large hole in the windshield.

    That's when the suspect's handgun fell through the hole and into Costello's lap. She grabbed the gun and aimed it at the suspect, who fled to the Impala.

    Costello then tried to drive off, but her car struck the front of the suspects' car. She drove around the Impala and copied its tag number before it got away.

    From a picture on the suspect's cell phone, Costello was able to identify the man she said banged the hole in her windshield and dropped his gun. Police identified the suspect as Raymond Lewis Shepard, 25, of Daytona Beach. The Impala driver has not been identified.

    The tag number Costello provided to police, 280 LMH, is registered to a 2006 four-door Chevrolet Impala. The recovered handgun, a .380-caliber Cobra, had been reported stolen, police said.

    No shots were fired, and no one was injured, police said, except perhaps the clumsy driver's ego.

    From the photo of the dirtbag, I'd say that he's been around the 'system' a bit. That's no high school yearbook photo.

    These thugs might want to consider purchasing retention lanyards for their firearms. You might still drop it but you can get it back pretty quick.

    Stupid knuckledraggers!!!!
    Hopefully these guys will open a school for upcoming thugs, so as to train them in "How to JACK someone" so it makes it all the more easy to catch them.

    This story should give him a lot of "skreet" cred while he's in jail.

    Do that to my Grammy here in Texas and he wouldn't have to worry about anything again. She'd have shot him before he could get off the hood. With her 357!

    How stupid can he be? Looks like a Darwin Candiate for sure.
    Too bad he missed his chance to enter the contest.

    PLEEEEEEEEAAAASE tell me these morons haven't reproduced yet, or never will. Just more STUPID trash to clean up if they do.
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Sounds like your near the coast. I worked with a kid from Beaufort, SC. I took me 3 weeks to be able to understand him enough to not say "Huh?" every other word. "Gon go skraight down da skreet and git me some skrimps."

    I guess if your going to be attacked it helps if your attacker is an idiot.

    Another example of the urgent need for effective birth control in North America. Or maybe retroactive birth control?
