According to the police report obtained by The Smoking Gun the man blamed Mr. Wick after police searched his vehicle following a domestic dispute call.

Responding early yesterday to a 911 call about a domestic violence incident, cops questioned Getro Gelin, 27, at his residence in Port St. Lucie. A woman told police that Gelin shoved her to the ground and threatened her with a firearm.

After the victim said that Gelin may have hidden the gun in his Porsche SUV, cops searched the vehicle and recovered a Glock 21 pistol, a semi-automatic rifle, and a bulletproof vest.

When asked about the guns in the auto, Gelin “replied he had sold the Porsche to his cousin John Wick.” Gelin subsequently “stated he lied about the name, but that he would not reveal his cousin’s name.”

Gelin was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and domestic battery and is reportedly being held in jail on a $3,500 bond

Considering how absurd his story was Twitter users had a bit of fun with the Flordia man trying to pin his crimes to John Wick.
