‘WTF?’ of the Day: Guy in Wheelchair Nearly Submits Convenience-Store Psycho

Guy In Wheelchair Stops Robber – Watch more Funny Videos

Word to the wise — before you try to start trouble at a convenience store, make sure there isn’t a paraplegic BJJ specialist waiting in line to buy scratch-off tickets. The above video was taken Saturday night in Vancouver, after a man tried to pass off a suspicious-looking $50 bill. When the clerk refused to accept it, the dude in black lurched awkwardly behind the counter, clearly up to no good.

That’s when Epic Wheelchair Man (real name: Larry Skopnik) rolls up and grabs a rear-naked choke. The robber twists away, and Skopnik transitions to the same kind of guillotine that Dan Miller tapped Jake Rosholt with. And he would have sunk it if those other dudes hadn’t started meddling. (How ’bout that pussy swinging the "Wet Floor" sign?) The gang was able to subdue the bad guy until police arrived. As Skopnik said later, "I don’t feel like a hero and I’m not really comfortable with this limelight. What made me do that is inside of me. It has nothing to do with disability." In other words, you can take a man’s legs, but you can never take his balls.

Thanks to CagePotato reader Paul B. for the tip!

One of the few guys who could give BJ Penn's rubber-guard a run for its money.

If only he got his hooks in

That's some sick jits...I wonder how often he rolls....

Dude certainly didn't look like he was there to rob the place. If the cashier took my $50 under the excuse that "it looks fake" I'd snap too.

And Mr. Wheelchair sure was quick to take action.

Thanks for the update...sounds like Seattle without the multiculturalism and high priced housing.
My brother is in Fort Mac and echoes your sentiments.
Canada needs to start doing what Australia does, we may not have a Christmas Island of our own, but when those boats show up full of Chinese and East Indians, we need to turn them around and send them back home. Not saying no immigration for people, but it Vancouver is a prime example of what happens when you lose control of the situation. What's more is that people come over here, put the mirrors on the houses, change the street signs, build their business relationships an import import import all day. Absorbing our Canadian culture is a distant thought as well.
Hope you are happy where you are at now, if not Montreal still has some room.

@Get Off Me

VanCity has always been, and continues to be a Cesspool. I lived there for 3 months and ran screaming for the hills.
It is a seedy, piece of shit in my opinion.
It is over-run with freaks and deviants.
Vancouver has a large mix of Chinese, East Indian and Anglo's and the three don't assimilate very well together.
You couldn't pay me enough to live there.
How it is voted (every year) as one of the best places in the world to live,... is beyond me.
With an average of 50 inches of rain per year and very little sunshine, a high suicide rate and some of the most outrageous property prices in all of Canada,...I frankly don't get it?

My highschool football coach lost one of his balls working construction.

Note to self: Never lurch awkwardly toward a cashier in Vancouver unless someone's got my back.

" can take a man's legs, but you can never take his balls."

Yeah, you need to marry Jenna Jameson for that to happen.

Joe Swanson would be proud.

i think you guys are being a little generous calling this robber a psycho. Pussy would be a better word to describe him. It's obvious that the guy needed money and was tired of blowing strangers in back alleys. Honestly, I think he robbed that place just so he could buy some new shirts at Buckle.

What an ugly ass hoody. It looks like that dude is getting choked out by the matrix.
thebassmaster- November 10, 2010 at 8:18 am
@Hexed LMAO. you are terrible.... so funny though.
The initial RNC was doomed to fail without the hooks, unless the robber was Pat Barry

What made the guy with the wet floor sign finally do something...Was it the idiot assaulting the cashier? No. Was it the idiot grappling with Mr. Skopnik? No. It was when the guy accidentally plowed into him while running from the disabled guy...I think Larry could have taken them both....possibly blindfolded

I loled at the pussy swinging the "Wet Floor" sign too. What kind of pansy stands around doing that while a guy in a wheelchair is wrestling with a criminal?
Krazy Kracker- November 10, 2010 at 8:00 am
Proof that Marc Stevens IS the only man alive that taps to guillotines without guard.

Larry Slopnik vs Kyle Maynard, make it happen strikeforce!

MorningwoodII- November 10, 2010 at 7:58 am
he pissed hot for "chairoids"
MorningwoodII- November 10, 2010 at 7:56 am
I am not impressed by his performance, and He pissed hot when the cops tested him.
El Famous Burrito- November 10, 2010 at 7:55 am
Kick his ass! Oh, wait....

Triangle! Um, no....

Knees! Knees! Again, no....

Stand up for justice? Crap....

Fuck it. This guy is too cool for bad jokes.

Not to steal the thunder but the "Sand prank on praying guy" linked at the end is rofltastic.
