just seen this one doing the rounds, supposedly from an article in a local newspaper .....
a man from augusta, georgia, was observed trying to steal a laptop from a best buy store - when confronted, he pulled a knife and tried to make a run for it
outside the store, 4 marines were collecting for charity when the chap tried to make his escape - they attempted to apprehend the miscreant, who was having none of it and stabbed one of the marines, although not seriously
police arrived at the scene, along with an ambulance, and the injured marine was taken for treatment
of the guy with the knife, the final paragraph of the piece reads as follows:
"the subject was also transported to the local hospital with 2 broken arms, a broken ankle, a broken leg, several missing teeth, possible broken ribs, multiple contusions, assorted lacerations, a broken nose and a broken jaw ..... injuries he sustained when he slipped and fell off the curb after stabbing the marine, according to a police report"
