New Mexico man tries to carjack three football players – the aftermath is this legendary mugshot

StaffRebel Columnist

A carjacker in Albuquerque got the beating of his life when he tried to rob three football players after their practice.

Fox News reports that 20-year-old Angelo Drew Martinez asked the players for a ride around Loma Linda Community Center football field on August 11.

Despite one of the players saying he was “acting sketchy,” they agreed to give him a ride, but Martinez kept changing his mind about the destination. Eventually, at a stop in front of a house, Martinez allegedly pulled a gun on the boys and ordered them out of the car.

The boys, who were held at gunpoint, complied, but sprung into action when Martinez reportedly fumbled the gun. One of the players got back in the car and punched the alleged carjacker, and then the rest joined in until police arrived.

Police determined the gun wasn't real, but he was also carrying a note that read, “Give me the keys to your wip and a nobody get heart [sic. I know where you live so don’t make me kill.”

He has been charged with four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and attempt to commit a felony. His mugshot taken the night of the arrest is proof that he made a serious mistake by attempting to carjack football players.

Good idea, Ken and Jaroslav. Maybe we can run all potential stories by a government agency to determine if it in news worthy and acceptable to the largest number of citizens. Or else we could just take it for what it’s worth and come to our own conclusions. Those who need pre-digested opinions should stick with the CBC and the rest of the MSM.

Another wannabe sicario gets a facial. LMAO.
As for the self defense issue.. Ask the judge what we/he would/should do in the complete absence of official police protection while your life is threatened by a hostile criminal element with no positive outcome encounter for yourself without confronting violence with violence.!!

JAROSLAV OVTSYN. Good point. Whoever wrote up this story should avoid doing so again.

Jaroslav it is about people defending themself, you can’t do it in Canada.

What’s the point in having this post on the website? Is it arguing for/against gun rights? Is it implying that mexicans are bad?

That’s why Ezra is right when he says they need a full-time editor to make sure that pointless sensationalistic posts like this do not appear on this website.

So sweet. But as another commentator said; Disappointed he’s still able to pose for a photo rather than in traction in a hospital bed. So not good enough.
Deport as well.

Nose is too straight, ears are attached and has most of his teeth – looks like he was roughed up by the cheer leaders instead of the players.

He picked the wrong people to victimize…he deserved the beating. Hopefully, he will learn from this.
