(Newser) – It looks like a choreographed action sequence from a low-budget movie, but it's real surveillance footage from New Orleans: A shotgun-wielding would-be mugger charges a man, demanding money. But instead of reaching for his wallet, the victim grabs the shotgun pointed at his head and chases his attacker down the street with it. Cops tell the Times-Picayune that friends of the foiled crook then drove up and told the man, "Give me my gun back and I’ll give you your phone that you dropped." His response: He smashed the car's rear window out with the shotgun.

That's Aikido Steven Seagal stuff. I mean the dude pulls the classic move to take the shotgun away from the the robber, it's right out of Seagal's first movie "Above the Law"
