A Gun-Waving Dallas Man Demanded Discount on Hustle Gang Shirt, Got Arrested Instead

If you simply must have an authentic Hustle Gang T-shirt but can't afford the $50 price tag, and if you aren't put off by criminal activity, shoplifting isn't a horrible option. If properly executed, a surprise grab-and-run operation, much like this 300-pound dude carried out at Mockingbird Station's Victoria's Secret in February, gives a decent chance of escaping with the loot.

But concocting such a plan, as stupid and rudimentary as it is, requires at least a flicker of reason, which 20-year-old Daniel Jarmaillo does not appear to possess.

According to Dallas police, Jaramillo entered the Webb Chapel location of DK Foot & Casual on Wednesday afternoon. He selected a T-shirt, took it to the sales counter, and threatened the clerks with a gun. His demand? A discount.

One of the clerks told Unfair Park that the man was hard to understand but that "made a lot of emphasis on getting a discount" while waving around a handgun. The clerk remembered the shirt as a Hustle Gang number that retails for $50.

It's not clear how large of a discount Jaramillo was demanding, though it's inconsequential at this point. Jaramillo was arrested for aggravated robbery and taken to Lew Sterrett, where he remains, presumably in a shirt he can't stand.

Would of made my Friday if he was on Mary Suhm's stolen bicycle (that was just "found") in the getaway.

How long do you think he has been practicing that 'I'm a thug' look?

I guess that discount thing's been working over at the taco stand so he thought he'd try it at the mall.

Another instance of dumbassfluenza. The store clerk should have given him the shirt, and directions to the head shop that's been in the news lately, the one that Aims To Please.

The cashier should have asked to see his driver's license in order to give him a discount - I bet he would have gone for it.

This story sounds fascinating, but is a little short on details. Did he get a discount and pay for it? Where did police arrest him? Did he pull a Lee Harvey Oswald and go to the Cinema 17 after his crime?

Eric can be short on info sometimes...but it gets EVEN BETTER!:

"According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Daniel Jaramillo, 20, walked into the shoe store in the 9700 block of Webb Chapel Road. He asked the employee if he had any shirts available that matched his shoes, police said in the affidavit.

Police said Jaramillo pulled a gun when the employee grabbed a shirt for him to try on. Jaramillo allegedly said “I’m gonna get a discount, right?” to the man, who replied “yes.”

Jaramillo then holstered the pistol and walked into the dressing room, police said. The employee pressed the panic button.

The affidavit states that Jaramillo pulled his pistol back out and asked another employee “if she would hold it for him while he tried on his shirt.” She said no and ran away. An officer arrived shortly after and arrested Jaramillo.

The pistol turned out to be a pellet gun, police said.

Jaramillo has been charged with aggravated robbery. He had a misdemeanor theft charge and an evading arrest charge pending in Dallas County. He was also arrested this year for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

He remained in Dallas County Jail on Thursday in lieu of $100,458 bond."

@Sharon_Moreanus In the depth of irony, if Tarantino or the Coen brothers created this scene for a movie, it would take bright creativity to script it, and then an intelligent actor to play the part.

@ruddski Eh, he looks young enough that he is probably legal. Most likely just a dumbass because he went to DISD ;)
