A Florida man who was arrested after trying to rob a store says he was trying to prove to his mother that he is “independent.”
Hasan Campbell, 23, reportedly tried to rob a Circle K store, but the employee behind the counter refused to give him the money. At this point, a customer came over and confronted Campbell. The two had a brief fight, but the man was able to escape.
Deputies were able to track his car down and a brief chase ensued before his car was stopped and Campbell was arrested. After being mirandized, he reportedly told detectives that he only committed the crime in an attempt to impress his mother and prove his independence.
