Mugger Gets Trapped In NYC Subway Gate By Good Samaritans

Filed under: Legal MattersInspirationBusted!

Don't mess with New Yorkers! They really are tough.

A mugger attacked a man in an NYC subway last June and ran off with his iPhone, but didn't expect what would happen next.

The victim chased his attacker down and, with the help of a few good samaritans, managed to trap him in a turn-style gate.

It was all caught on video too, so check it out (above)!

Unfortunately, the thief eventually squeezed out and ran off. Still, at least the few people trying to do the right thing made this guy's unlawful actions a little more difficult to pull off.

Man Claims To Have Been Mugged Over Oprah Tickets, When Really He Never Had Them

Now he's in the doghouse AND possibly headed to the big house!!! HA!

Hey, Oprah! Have a listen to this one! It's a doozy!

Last week, Robert Spearing and his wife traveled from Canada to Chicago for a trip of a lifetime. Rob had told his wife that he had scored them two tickets to Oprah Winfrey's final show, the most coveted experience in America. However, on the day the two were supposed to head to the show, Rob came back to his hotel beaten and bruised, claiming he was mugged by to scoundrels out to steal the tickets for themselves. He called the police to report the matter, but the tickets were already gone, their chance at standing in the aura of Big O lost forever.

Except they so weren't since he never had them to begin with!

After a little thing police like to call "investigating," it was determined that Robert was completely LYING about being mugged and that in fact, he had faked his own injuries to adhere to his concocted story. When the police caught him in the lie, he confessed that he cut his own forehead with a rock and scraped his hands on the sidewalk before returning to his wife to admit he no longer had the tickets. But the real kicker is…he's been lying for AWHILE. Indeed, he NEVER had tickets to Oprah's final show and he just didn't have the nerve to tell his wife! LOLZ!

Wow! Talk about committing to the ruse! Think he came up with the mugging thing on the fly or he had the whole story in mind by the time they left their house???

The elaborate scheme has left the guy in a lot of trouble. He's now facing one count of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report and is due back in court this week to put in a plea. No doubt he'll be back in court again soon after that…to handle his divorce settlement!

All in the name of Oprah!

Mark Ronson's Bizarre Mugging!

Ha!

We don't mean to laugh, because we're sure this must have been pretty scary, but it's a pretty HIGHlarious story!

Mark Ronson revealed that he was mugged under very unusual circumstances in New York City recently!

He explains:

"As they're coming to the end of mugging me, I'm still standing there and they're making their plans. One of them is, like, 'We'll meet you back at so-and-so's house', and they knock fists together. And, because I had so many nerves running through me, I actually put my hand out and did the same. Like, 'Yeah, thanks for that'."

WTF?

LOLs!

Mark, bb, you do NOT want to fist pump with the guys that stole all of your shiz!

However, we are happy to hear that you made it out okay!

Johnny Depp Saves The Day!

Ha! Damn right!

You don't mess with Captain Jack Sparrow!

Johnny Depp was apparently hanging with his friend, Babybird's Stephen Jones, when the two were almost mugged!

However, things took a pretty comical turn when the mugger recognized the SEKSI actor!

A source says:

"It was an extremely scary moment. This guy looked off his head. Johnny looked him straight in the eyes and told him to back off. The guy was OK. He looked at Johnny and said, 'I ain't stealing from Captain Jack' and put the bottle down. Johnny gave him a few bucks and told him to straighten up his life."

And Johnny gave him cash after?! Wow! That's the last thing we'd want to do for someone who just tried to steal our shiz!

What a stand-up guy!
