SpongeBob Armed Robbery, 2011
Here’s the second appearance on our list of the friendly little fellow who lives in a pineapple under the sea. In July 2011, a man wearing a full-face SpongeBob Squarepants mask walked into an Orlando-area 7-Eleven with a friend and marched up to the cashier. Brandishing an AK-47 assault rifle, SpongeBob and his friend (who was not dressed as Patrick the starfish) demanded that he empty the cash register. He fired two shots into the ceiling to inspire the guy and proceeded to make off with a couple hundred bucks in cash. The man was arrested after a string of other robberies in which he didn’t impersonate SpongeBob. Perhaps that was his downfall.
