Authenticity Watch: Street cred version

 Aspiring Florida rapper Steven Gilmore felt he needed a bit of OG cred to kickstart his singing career. So he robbed a restaurant, then tried to stick up a convenience store with a BB gun. But the store clerk fought back and took a BB in the forehead. Gilmore took off empty handed, making his getaway on a moped driven by a 16 year-old accomplice. 

Gilmore is now in jail facing multiple felony charges. Mission accomplished, it would seem.
