Man With Fake Gun Tries To Rob Race Car Driver, Fails Miserably

Illustration for article titled Man With Fake Gun Tries To Rob Race Car Driver, Fails Miserably

IndyCar driver JR Hildebrand was out and about in Indianapolis last night walking his dog when a man approached from behind, pulled out a gun, and said "give it to me." That's when Hildebrand decided the gun was fake and he wouldn't "give it to him."

According to the police report, Hildebrand heard a clicking sound coming from the gun which is what tipped him off that it was fake. He told the guy to "get lost" a few times, which was enough to scare him away,

Hildebrand called the Indianapolis Metro Police Department (Indianapolice would be a clever name for them, right?), who searched the area, but did not find an embarrassed would-be robber with a fake gun.

Hildebrand was unhurt and probably feels like a bit of a badass.
