Man Arrested For Holding Up Convenience Store With Tennis Racket

POLICE DEFTLY FOIL CRIMINAL’S RACKET: SbBer Mark tips me off to an ASSOCIATED PRESS report, which notes a man was arrested this morning for attempting to hold up a convenience store with a tennis racquet - while claiming it was an assault rifle.

Police report Ernesto Martinez, 20, “yelled out that he was armed with an Uzi assault rifle, he was robbing the store, and that he was going to kill everyone inside and burn the building down. He then began lighting a piece of paper on fire and pointing the tennis racket as if it were a gun.

Whatever he had, I’m having tonight. Cheers.
