Cologne-bottle gun doesn't fool robbery victims

Cologne_gunOhio man gets beat up after trying to rob people with a gun that was really a perfume bottle, reeks of cologne when bottom breaks out of said gun.

"It's unusual that somebody would use a cologne bottle, I mean by looking at it at night time, you wouldn't know the difference." said Lt. Edwards, "It possibly could be a gun, I mean he's taken black magic marker and colored the gold so it looks like it's real."

Bonus: Mug shot of the day is posted with this link.

You can bid on this antique Avon-model perfume gun starting at $3.99 on E-Bay.

Hat Tip: Thanks again to You're a Mean Drunk R2D2!
