Mugshot of the Day: This Guy is Screwed (And Knows It)



Meet Emmanuel Rodriguez. He's screwed, and he knows it.

Rodriguez, 30, was taken into custody last night after he held his uncle against his will with a shotgun, and then shot the poor chap. After calling police to report the crime, the victim was flown from a residence in Lorain to Cleveland's Metro Health Regional Medical Center where he is now in stable condition. Things aren't looking so good for his nephew, though, who is facing an attempted murder charge, as well as a weapons under disability charge. He is expected to be arraigned later today (via the Lorain Morning Journal).
