Man Dies While Testing Out A Bulletproof Vest
In the ultimate "Hold My Beer While I..." story, a Florida man is now dead after testing out a bulletproof vest and failing. Joaquin Mendez, 23, tried on a "fragmentation protective vest" and asked aloud whether the vest really worked or not. His friend, Alexandro Garibaldi, 24, then replied with a phrase that typically does not end well, "Let's see!” and pulled a gun on Mendez, killing him.
Garibaldi is now facing jail time for manslaughter and for being a felon with a firearm. There are many questions to be asked here such as, where did he get the vest in the first place? Were they drunk? Lastly, why would you allow your felon friend to shoot you while you're wearing a vest in which you're already questioning if it works? Your guess is as good as ours!
