You’ve heard of dumb criminals before. But this case takes it to the next level while proving life does indeed imitate art.
Thanks to our many streaming services, I spent the holidays watching tons of Christmas classics with my grand-daughters. And what Christmas playlist is complete without hearing a panicked mother shout: “KEVIN!”
It was the first time they’d seen Home Alone, and even though I’ve seen it at least fifty times, it’s comedic genius is still good for some legit belly laughs, which is exactly what I needed to get through the holidays this year. I subscribe to that whole school of thought that laughter really is the best medicine. So, when I started reading through today’s headlines, I couldn’t help but think that eight-year-old Kevin McAllister is still out there in the universe serving up some good ole-fashioned payback to the criminals that deserve it most.
Of course, this story has a happy ending, so it’s easy to make light of the situation. Things certainly could’ve turned tragic in a heartbeat. But I’m glad this criminal got a heaping dose of karma for Christmas.
As Fox News explains:
A Georgia man’s attempt to rob a business in the early hours of Christmas morning went awry when employees fended off the suspect, sending him slipping on ice and hitting his head on the ground, according to the Gainesville Police Department.
Luis Sajbocho-Ordonez, 30, is now facing armed robbery and aggravated assault charges.
The incident, which police likened to a “scene out of Home Alone,” began around 1:00 a.m. on Christmas morning.
Sajbocho-Ordonez was allegedly hiding behind a business in Gainesville, which is about 50 miles northeast of Atlanta, and pulled a gun on an employee who walked outside.
The employee got into a physical altercation with Sajbocho-Ordonez, who allegedly fired a shot after another worker exited the building and spooked him.
Sajbocho-Ordonez then allegedly tried to flee the scene but slipped on a frozen patch and hit his head. Witnesses were able to take two guns away from him until police arrived and took Sajbocho-Ordonez into custody.
No one was struck by the gunfire.
“Fortunately, no serious injuries occurred and the perp went to jail,” the Gainesville Police Department said.
Apparently, this guy went to the Jussie Smollett School of Crime, as he couldn’t even get a robbery right! He took two guns, but was taken down by Mother Nature and her icy demeanor. Only a leftist could screw up a Christmas crime this badly. There were only three things missing: a tarantula, an iron to the face, and a snow shovel.
