When people find themselves in trouble, many turn to making up excuses. It’s simply human nature for some. But a recent suspect in Florida took it to another level. After allegedly threatening a woman with a gun, when arrested, the Florida man said the guns belonged to his cousin, John Wick. Yes, that John Wick.

Police searched the suspect’s Porsche SUV and found a handgun and rifle, reported wptv.com. That’s when the man’s story turned even more squirrelly. He first told deputies he didn’t own the vehicle. Then he came back and claimed he sold it to his cousin, John Wick.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for quite some time, you’ll recognize John Wick as the badass fictional character played by Keanu Reeves. The Wick franchise, now working on its fourth installment, proved extremely popular with shooting enthusiasts.
