Convicted felon Anthony Miranda decided to rob a driver in a car near Midway International Airport. He picked the wrong victim. Miranda ended up getting shot in the ankle with his own gun and, from the looks of the mugshot, getting a major butt whooping.
CHICAGO (CBS) — Robbing a man who turned out to be an ultimate fighter proved to be a bad decision for a convicted felon, who is now in bad shape as he is held on bond....Undoubtedly, Anthony Miranda will soon be made famous on an episode of America's Dumbest Criminals.
During the fight, Miranda accidentally discharged his own gun, shooting himself in the ankle, police said.
The victim — who told police he is a martial arts expert and ultimate fighter — was able to pin Miranda down until police arrived.
Police arrived to find Miranda with a face full of lacerations and two black eyes. He was taken to Holy Cross Hospital for treatment, police said.
