Chicago, Illinois (The Weekly Vice) - Anthony Miranda, a 24-year-old Chicago man was jailed Friday after he attempted to rob the wrong person.... with predictable results.
According to Chicago Police, Miranda ended the day with raccoon-style black eyes and a self-inflicted gunshot wound after he attempted to mug a man who was also a mixed martial arts fighter.
Investigators say Miranda walked up to a Chicago resident's car Friday night and asked the driver for a lighter. He then reportedly pulled out a handgun and demanded money.
When the driver handed Miranda some cash, Miranda went a step further and ordered the victim out of the car. That's when the driver, grabbed Miranda's gun and wrestled it away from him.
During the struggle, Miranda reportedly shot himself in the ankle. The driver also delivered a little street justice to Miranda's face before officers arrived on the scene.
Miranda was treated at a local hospital and then booked into jail on charges of armed robbery and aggravated discharge of a firearm. He remains jailed in lieu of $350,000 bond.
