Wes Craven's Scream
Wes Craven's Scream


Meridian, Miss. police have charged 33-year-old Indianapolis man Jerry Jones with two counts of armed robbery.

During the stickup, Jones (not the owner of the Dallas Cowboys) donned the mask made famous in Wes Craven‘s 90s slasher flick Scream.

How awesome and stupid can one person be? A. If someone came into my store wearing that mask, I’d start shooting — no questions asked. And B. I think horror fans have been expecting something like this for a long time.

Watch out for copycats though… What’s next? Freddy Krueger knocking over 7-11s?

Although I’m sure there were plenty of screams,  no one was slashed in either heist.

David Arquette and Courtney Cox were unavailable for comment at the time of this article.
