Indiana man robbing banks dressed as Rick James

They say mimicry is the sincerest form of flattery, but we’re wondering how the late Rick James would feel had he been alive to witness recent events unfolding in Indiana. According to witnesses in an RTV6 report, a man has reportedly been donning the R&B legend’s signature attire and running around robbing banks. The suspect and his accomplice who commemorates Youngblood Priest from Super Fly recently robbed two banks in the state consecutively, demanding large amounts of cash and running out with a bag in hand as if they were filming a movie of their own. Despite fear induced from any type of robbery situation, we imagine getting robbed by a Rick James impersonator makes for a great story to tell the grandkids.
