The so-called "Knockout Game" that has allegedly reared its ugly head in Brooklyn had negative consequences for an attacker in Michigan.
Marvell Weaver, 17, of Lansing, ran into the wrong victim, reports News One.
His intended target pulled out his (legal) pistol and shot Weaver twice. Weaver was sentenced one year in jail.
The video above also shows several other very disturbing knockout attacks.
On Saturday, a man was arrested for a knockout attack in Brooklyn. Amrit Marajh, 28, of Kensington, was charged with charged with assault, harassment and menacing. The Jewish victim was walking down a street in Borough Park, when he said he heard four men talking about knocking him out before hitting him. The four had just left a bar.
Three other men were picked up but not charged. Marajh denies he attacked the man, saying his girlfriend is Jewish, according to the NY Post.
While the Rev. Al Sharpton spoke out against the “knockout game” on Saturday, Marajh is a name of Indian origin.
Marajh is out on $750 bail, according to the New York Times.
