There will be a definite echelon of enthusiasm when watching a James Bond movie. Like the yesteryear James Bond Desmond Llewelyn driving a Lotus or an Aston Martin that has been mounted with an M16. But in the real world mounting a gun in a car is illegal and people can end up in the poky for doing that. One Czech citizen found that out in a hard way.

This happened in the city of Johannesburg, South Africa (S.A). According to the Mirror news, A man named Radovan Krejcir, just got out from his Merc, and as he started walking towards a pawn shop, he heard popping sounds. When he turned around, he saw a VW Cross Polo, which was parked straight to where he habitually squares. The car suddenly opened fire, from more than a dozen shotguns that were wedged under the car’s license plate. Almost ten rounds hit Mr. Krejcir’s car on the driver’s side, but thankfully he was out of from harms way, as he was almost near the door of the pawn shop. After the rounds were rolled out, the Polo caught fire, there is no information if this was intentional, to destroy evidence or just plain bad luck.

The Associated Press intelligence, states that this was not a haphazard work of hostility, and they also mentioned that Mr. Krejcir was linked to the Czech underground, and reports have it that he ran off from his abode after evading a law enforcement raid in the year 2005. After a while he was sighted in S.A in 2007. He has yet to serve his 11 year sentence in county prison, for his count of tax evasion. From the time when in S.A, Mr. Krejcir has been charged with two accounts breaking the law, one of insurance fraud and another for robbery, but the charges were dropped in due course. There is also some information that he was mixed up with the murder of a strip club owner way back in 2010. There is even more proof that is not on the good side of the law, like owning a black Merc with bullet-proof protection and a pawn shop.
