Proving that ice cream is bad for you, a man who walked into a ice cream shop to satisfy his sweet tooth ended up behind bars after a gun fell out of his shorts.
The incident occurred Saturday at a Coney Island Baskin-Robbins in New York, police say. Emmanuel Lovett, 33, walked into the shop and tugged on his shorts — causing a loaded pistol to drop to the floor. Clearly, it wasn’t Lovett’s day, because three of the shop’s other customers happened to be New York cops.
As it turned out, Lovett has a robbery conviction on his record, which prohibits him from owning a gun. So in addition to not getting any ice cream, he was carted off to jail and charged with criminal possession of a firearm.
