Reason not to mug someone trained in mixed martial arts and Ultimate Fighting: Anthony Miranda's police mugshot. Chicago police say Miranda, 24, pulled a gun on a man sitting in a car, then demanded that the man get out. That's when the "victim," identified only as Justin by the Chicago Sun-Times, managed to grab the weapon and keep the suspect pinned until police arrived. From the looks of things, he landed a punch or two or three.

“I don’t feel like a hero,” said Justin. “Training matters. If you’re well trained, you have a chance to survive.” More bad news for Miranda: He discharged the gun during the melee, apparently by accident, and caught a bullet in the ankle. (More dumb criminals stories.)
