When a man was confronted about his shoplifting, he warded his accusers off with hypodermic needles, telling them he was HIV positive.
It all went down at a Duane Reade in New York City.
Although this was of course a pretty low stunt, it makes you wonder why no one has ever thought of it before.
After putting items from the store into his pockets, the shoplifters came over to him and asked what he was up to.
He didn't pull out a gun, a bomb, or a knife, but what he did pull out could have been just as 'fatal'.
The man pulled out needles, yelling at them that he had HIV, and he wasn't afraid to spread it. The employees called the police, and told them what happened.
Cops have yet to find the man. Whether he actually has HIV or not is unknown, but those living in NYC should definitely keep an eye out for his needles.
