Was Dr. Ben Carson Really Held at Gunpoint at Popeye's?

There's growing mystery surrounding Dr. Ben Carson's story about a robber pulling a gun on him at a Popeye's restaurant nearly 40 years ago.

“I have had a gun held on me. Guy comes in, puts a gun in my ribs. And I just said, ‘I believe that you want the guy behind the counter. He said, ‘Oh, okay,’" Dr. Carson recalled on The Karen Hunter Show on Sirius XM Radio.

But Baltimore police can't verify Dr. Carson's account of the robbery, saying in a tweet: “There was not enough info to identify a police report in reference to the incident.”

The Republican presidential candidate got a bit testy when questioned on Friday's Good Morning America: “Well, of course they don't have a record. This happened when I was a resident more than three decades ago.”

In a new Sirius XM radio interview, Dr. Carson said the Popeye’s robbery was all too real.

“As a God-fearing Christian, it's something that happened. It's not something I made up,” he said.
