Bicycle Thief Sues Victims From Prison

July 30, 2010  | 

A Florida man who was caught by three men stealing a bicycle is suing the men for $500,000 in damages, claiming they roughed him up, MSNBC.com reports.

Michael Dupree is serving a 12-year sentence for burglary and cocaine possession stemming from a 2007 break-in of a van in St. Petersburg, Fla. Dupree allegedly stole the bicycle locked inside and was apprehended after the owner, Anthony McKoy, saw him with the bike down the street, according to the report.

Apparently, McKoy pointed a gun at Dupress, handcuffed him, and then held him down until officers could arrive.
