Inmate Sues Man He's Convicted of Robbing

All this while you were under the impression that you've heard it all. You're were so wrong.
A convict is suing the man he robbed, alleging he and two others roughed him up during a citizen's arrest. Michael Dupree is serving a 12-year sentence for burglary and cocaine possession stemming from his 2007 break-in of a van in St. Petersburg. Dupree stole a bicycle locked inside and was apprehended after the owner, Anthony McKoy, saw him with the bike down the street. Dupree alleges McKoy and two other men pointed a gun at him, handcuffed him and placed a knee painfully in his back. He's seeking $500,000 for disabilities and distress suffered during the takedown. Dupree filed the civil lawsuit on his own, without the help of an attorney. After being served with the suit, McKoy said, "I thought it was a joke. I'm the victim."
Now you've heard it all.
