Crime Definitely Does Not Pay for a Mugger

Anthony Miranda was charged and arrested for robbery of a man who turned out to be an ultimate fighter and martial arts expert.

According to the police report, Miranda, 24, around 11:30PM on Friday, walked up to a car parked at 55th Street and Kenneth Avenue in Chicago, and asked the driver for a light. Then, Miranda pulled out a handgun and demanded the driver's money.

The driver compiled and gave Miranda some of his money. However, Miranda was not satisfied. He ordered the driver out of the car. At some point, Miranda got distracted and the driver grabbed the gun and the two began to wrestle.

Miranda managed to shoot himself in the ankle with his own gun. The victim had Miranda pinned down to the ground when police arrived.

Police found Miranda had a face full of lacerations and two black eyes and was taken to Holy Cross Hospital for treatment.

Miranda, a convicted felon, was charged with armed robbery and aggravated discharge of a firearm.
