    Robber Tries to Buy Back Gun From Victims: Cops
    Mitchell faces charges of armed home invasion and resisting an officer.By Karen Franklin

    Authorities say a man was arrested after he dropped his gun during a robbery and returned to the scene to try and buy it back from the victims.

    Cedrick Mitchell, 39, faces charges of armed home invasion and resisting an officer, according to online jail records. He is being held without bond in Manatee County Jail.

    Police said Mitchell entered a motel room and asked for pills from the two men inside. When they responded that they didn't have any, Mitchell took out his gun and told the men "everything you got," according to the Bradenton Herald.

    Mitchell dropped his gun when the men began to fight with him, police say. One of the victims sprayed him with pepper spray and Mitchell ran away, authorities said.

    He returned to the motel room minutes later and offered the men $40 in exchange for the gun he dropped, the Herald reported . He was pepper-sprayed in the face again.

    Police found Mitchell when he was running away.

    He has a criminal history that includes robbery and battery, according to the newspaper.

    proof that Felony Stupid is alive and well. Extinction that should take place according to Darwin's evolution model has been greatly delayed due to the mentally vacuous thought process/teachings being forced upon the masses by the cult of political correctness.

    I'm sure I read somewhere, "Don't bring pepper spray to a gun fight." Guess he didn't know how to use the trigger, it wasn't loaded ($ or current ammo shortage, lol), forgot that when your the one pulling the gun out that you should have the safety OFF.
    Good for the guys who took charge of the situation, how ever dire. Weird they didn't pick it up and shoot him when he came back!?!
