A Florida man who was arrested for possession of guns allegedly tried to blame a weapons bust on John Wick, the famous assassin played by Keanu Reeves in the popular film franchise.
Police confronted Getro Gelin, 27, at his Port St. Lucie home Sunday after a woman told police he shoved her to the ground and threatened her with a firearm, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun.
The woman told authorities Gelin may have stashed the weapon in his Porsche SUV, according to the report. When cops searched the vehicle they found a Glock 21 pistol, a semi-automatic rifle, and a bulletproof vest, according to the report.
When asked to explain, he said that the SUV wasn’t even his anymore that he’d sold it “to his cousin John Wick,” according to the affidavit.
But he later admitted the John Wick reference was a lie, but “would not reveal his cousin’s name,” authorities said.
Gelin was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and domestic battery, according to the report.
He is being held in the county jail in lieu of $3,500 bond.
