Maybe don’t rob a sports book on the biggest betting day of the year
Someone actually did this on Super Bowl Sunday. You know, the day when people who don’t bet all year decide to bet and one of the busiest days the book deals with. From the Review Journal: The man arrested in connection with the armed robbery on Super Bowl Sunday at the South Point sports book almost made off with $58,000, according to an arrest report. A silent alarm was activated during the robbery, and South Point security found Israel Jackson, 32, in the hotel. He was taken into custody without incident shortly afterward by several hotel security officers in the valet area, police said. While in custody, Jackson told responding Metro officers that “he did the robbery because he had kids and needed the money,” according to the arrest report. He also asked police if he could apologize to the victim. At least he apologized.
