“Me being a big black guy in a car with a gun in it? There’s no way that scenario ends well for me if the cops come.” That’s what was going through WWE wrestler Shelton Benjamin‘s mind when he discovered a Ruger — not an F’N — in the glovebox of his Budget rental car, according to tmz.com. And yet . . .
Shelton handled things the right way — saying he called police immediately and explained the situation … and cops were cool when they came to collect the weapon.
In fact, cops told Shelton they see similar situations with guns left in rental cars “all the time.”
Deputies mistake man for murder suspect – Then again . . .
Peter, his wife, and four children were headed to the downtown VA for an appointment when their vehicle was surrounded by law enforcement.
“We were like ‘Wait a minute, what’s going on? Why are they pointing at us?’ so they run up to our car, and they immediately pull their guns out at us.”
He says the officers told him he looked like Richard Lyle Timmons, Jr. and he had a similar vehicle. His, a 2017 white Chevrolet Traverse. Timmons? 2010 . . .
A scary situation for the Butler family, but Peter says he knows the deputies were just doing their jobs.
Peter told me his family was so shaken up, they actually left Augusta immediately and headed straight for Chicago on Friday where his parents live. After serving many years in the military, he says he’s never seen so many weapons pointed in his direction, an experience he hopes never happens again.
And there I was thinking handgun slides were gender neutral. Something to think about in my AMG G-Wagon. [Click here for POF website.]
Criminals use public parking lots to sell guns, drugs – The bad guys get the drop on the good guys trying to get the drop on the bad guys. Unless there’s something else in play here . .
Sgt. Rule is the supervisor of an undercover unit of eight detectives. They gain the trust of criminals to buy narcotics and firearms. Many of the undercover buys are made in public places.
“We found out about their techniques by investigating individuals who are selling firearms. We weren’t setting up deals in parking lots.” Sgt. Rule said . . .
In the past few months, those deals have become more and more dangerous. Three undercover deputies have been robbed while trying to buy guns. One incident was in the parking lot of a convenience store. The other incident was across the street from the Hard Rock Casino.
“Those guys had their money taken and a gun put in their face.” Rule said.
Rule has also had a gun put in his face. While undercover in 2011, a suspect pointed a shotgun at him.
“I still get chills thinking about it.” He said. “It’s very dangerous.”
