Robber holds up a restaurant with an iPhone
The chefs drew their knives, and told Taylor that they weren't giving him anything. Taylor quickly changed his tone, apologizing, claiming that it was only a joke, and that he was trying to get money to support his young child.
Taylor escaped, but was soon tracked down by the police. When found, he confessed to the (attempted) crime, and explained that the "gun" in question was really his iPhone. The restaurant refused to press charges, but police arrested him anyway.
We don't think Taylor was aware that his actions constitute armed robbery, even if the victims only thought he had a gun. Is there an iPhone app for finding a good criminal defense attorney?
