Poor choices are a habit with some people. They can’t get away from them. No matter what choice they make, it is the wrong one!
Such is the life story of Christopher Raymond Hill of Jacksonville, Florida, whose name is now a punchline.
Poor Chris robbed a WalMart liquor store recently, then high-tailed it. The only problem was he had no getaway car. Pesky detail, but one that should not be overlooked by would-be Bonnies or Clydes.
First, Chris, hereafter referred to as Black Cloud, tried to steal a car that wouldn’t start. Don’t you hate a car that won’t start after you have robbed a liquor store?
So, Plan B, carjacking his way to freedom, was Black Cloud’s latest poor choice.
Bringing a knife to a gunfight, Black Cloud attempted to carjack the car of a driver who promptly pulled a handgun and instructed Black Cloud to GTFO, instructions the attempted carjacker followed explicitly and without hesitation.
Damn that Second Amendment!
So, where better to find an unarmed victim than a Starbucks drive-thru, yes, given Starbucks “no firearms” policy?
Choosing a female driver in the drive-thru lane at Starbucks, Black Cloud opened the passenger door of the woman’s car and made himself at home. His victim begged his indulgence while she retrieved her firearm from the trunk which she then stuck in his face, also instructing him to GTFO.
The police found Black Cloud in the restroom of a nearby barber shop, ostensibly hiding from a world full of guns.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WSVN) — Police say a man who tried to carjack two people was thwarted after the victims both pulled out guns to protect themselves.
According to Fox 30, Jacksonville police officers arrested 36-year-old Christopher Raymond Hill, charging him with strong-arm robbery, carjacking with firearm or deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and trespassing.
Detectives said the incident began when Hill robbed a Walmart liquor store, and attempted to flee in a silver Ford SUV. However, witnesses said the vehicle would not start, so he first tried to carjack Scott Reardean at knifepoint, cutting him on his arms and legs.
“I reached in between my glove box and my console, between my seats, reached down and got my weapon and brandished it for him,” Reardean told WJXT. “He was like, ‘Don’t shoot me.’ I was like, ‘Then get out of here.’”
Hill then jumped into the passenger seat of a woman’s car in a Starbucks drive-thru. Police said the woman got out of her car and grabbed a pistol from her trunk, pointing it at Hill until he ran off.
Reardean said he was glad he had his gun with him for self-defense.
“These guys can talk about banning assault rifles and banning guns, but when it comes and happens to them, they’re going to wish they had one,” Reardean told the station.
Ultimately, police found Hill inside the bathroom of a Supercuts, where he surrendered.
According to an arrest report, Hill told police, “The reason I was running and did this was because somebody was after me.”
Hill is currently being held on a bond of $91,512.
