This is my favorite stupid criminal story of the year so far!

According to the Sarasota Herald Tribune a 55 year old Bradenton, Florida man was working on his truck in the carport of his house.

That's when another man rode by on a bicycle, stopped, and asked the 55 year old if he had a light for a cigarette. When the man grabbed a lighter, the bicyclist pulled a switchblade knife on him and demanded that the 55 year old gave him a paint ball gun he spotted in the car port.

The 55 year old grabbed his paint ball gun, pointed it at the bicyclist and said...

You need to leave now. You just brought a knife to a gun fight.


The bicyclist (wisely) fled immediately. Police are still looking for the 6'0 red haired cyclist, but I have a feeling he won't be back to that gentleman's house.
