Detroit Man Killed Over "Expensive" Condoms

Detroit Man Killed Over "Expensive" Condoms

We're safe sex advocates over here, but there's one thing condoms can't protect you from: bullets.

A Detroit cashier is behind bars after shooting a customer following an argument that got completely out of hand. 24-year-old Michael Haynes II thought the condoms he bought at a BP on Detroit's west side were just a little too expensive, so he asked for a refund. When the cashier refused, things became heated.

Haynes started clearing shelves, so the cashier pulled out a gun and shot Haynes in the shoulder. Haynes died from his injury at a local hospital, and while the cashier will be charged for killing him, he might be able to claim self-defense.

Even with spring around the corner, it's still so cold in the D.
