Police nabbed him close by.
MacGyver was really good at using what he had at his disposal to accomplish his goals. He could use a piece of old Hubba Bubba and a paper clip to build a makeshift dirty bomb out of it. But Florida man is also a formidable force. When he wants something, he can get creative with the best of them.
In today’s story, Florida man decided he wanted to rob a Publix location in Miami. The only problem was, he didn’t have a gun. That’s when he decided to think outside the box. Police say the man walked into a Publix and handed a note to an employee. The note said the man had a gun and that he wanted all of the money they had to be placed in a bag amd handed to him. Instead of gathering all of the cash together, the employee walked away and told another employee what was happening. Police were called and the man left the building.
Investigators say 31-year-old Patrick Abbott left without getting any cash and was apprehended shortly after he left the scene. Cops nabbed the man as he was trying to throw away the note he used during the attempted robbery. When Abbott was arrested, a search revealed what the man had used for a weapon during the failed scheme, a small black stapler. The report did not mention if the stapler was loaded.
At the time of his arrest, Abbott was out on bond for allegedly abusing a baby. The charge stemmed from a previous incident where he was accused of dropping a baby several times while it was in his care. Abbott now faces an additional charge of armed robbery. Source: WFLA.com

Dave Grohl: 10 Outstanding Viral Moments
Dave Grohl hasn’t just given us some of our favorite music of the past three decades; he’s also provided us with some of rock’s best viral moments.
Honestly, and this isn’t hyperbole in any way, but Dave Grohl is simply magic. In honor of his birthday (January 14), here’s a look at just 10 of Grohl’s best viral moments.
Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny.
That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards.
After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind.
He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex.
He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
