Man attempts to rob restaurant using........an iPhone?

Restaurant robbery? There's an app for that

I may be stretching a bit calling this mobile news, but it was too good not to share. A 20 year old man was arrested after walking into a restaurant and demanding money from the staff. He was waving what some believed to be a gun in the air while threatening the kitchen help. The weapon in question? An iPhone.

He wasn't ready for the retaliation as the kitchen staff grabbed their knives and set themselves to face off with the assailant. The suspect gave himself up, and according to reports "became apologetic and told the cooks he was only kidding and that he needed money for his child." The restaurant, obviously feeling some holiday spirit, refused to press charges but the man was arrested anyways on charges of attempted robbery and interfering with an officer. The moral of the story? Don't bring an iPhone to a knife fight.
