ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — He picked the wrong dudes to mess with.
A New Mexico man who allegedly tried to carjack three football players coming off the practice field, had his face treated like a spiked football when the teammates snatched away his gun and pummelled him into submission.
Angelo Drew Martinez, 21, allegedly approached the players outside the Loma Linda Community Center on August 11, as they were trying to get into their car.
One of the the players said, Martinez was hovering around “acting sketchy as if he was trying to get in,” and when they asked him what he wanted, he said he needed a ride, KOAT-TV reported.
When they agreed to give him a lift, they say he kept changing his mind about where he wanted to go, and then pulled out a gun and demanded they get out of the car, police said.
As they exited the vehicle, Martinez apparently fumbled his weapon, so the men jumped back in, snatched the gun away and punched him in the face several times.
When cops arrived, they discovered the gun was fake, but they also found a knife tucked in Martinez’s waistband and a note in his pocket that read: “Give me the keys to your wip and a nobody get heart [Sic]. I know where you live so don’t make me kill.”
