Idiot arrested after trying to rob store with a game controller

Apr 20, 2011

Some people are just plain dumb. A man was arrested for trying to rob a small store using a Sony game controller. The man is 20-year-old Cameron Pittman and he is now facing charges of strong-arm robbery and violation of probation.

I wonder if he thought using a game controller wouldn't get him in as much trouble as a real gun if he was caught. Apparently, this moron put the controller in his pocket, went into the store, and tried to rob the place. The attempted heist was in Florida.

The guy was caught when a police officer walked into the store in the middle of the robbery and arrested Pittman. Pittman dropped the remote and gave up. That's gangsta' right there.
