It’s hard out there for lefties.
On Tuesday, lefties were celebrated on International Lefthanders Day.
The following day, one southpaw into a legal jam.
According to a police report from the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, deputies on Wednesday arrested Justin Kinnison in a theft of a fishing reel.
Surveillance video provided to authorities shows the 43-year-old walking into Armed Anglers store in Holiday, and place something into his front pocket. Kinnison is then seen passing the register with a “large bulge” in his pants, and exit the business.
An employee later found a rod that the defendant was looking at in the video, but it was missing a reel.
The complaint says Kinnison later admitted to authorities that he took the device valued at $148.
The 43-year-old outdoorsman explained that when he realized that the rod he had recently purchased was for a righty, he went back to pinch one for a lefty.
He was arrested on a charge of retail petit theft and booked into the Pasco County Jail.
