A man took a cue from National Lampoon's Vacation yesterday, and ended up in Sarasota County jail.
A white male in his 30s attempted to rob another man in the parking lot of the Publix on Fruitville Road with a pellet gun, and was arrested after the victim took his weapon Thursday, Sept. 12, according to a Sheriff's Office flash report.
The suspect, whose name has not been released, asked the victim for change for a $10 bill, then ordered him into his truck at gunpoint. The victim snatched the gun and fell out of the suspects truck, which blew a tire while the suspect fled. A deputy, unaware of the previous crime, pulled over the truck and made the arrest.
