Not sure if this is fact or not but I would like to think it is.  (searches so many references)

Augusta, GA
 
Orville Smith, a store manager for Best Buy in Augusta, Georgia, told police he observed a male customer, later identified as Tyrone Jackson of Augusta, on surveillance cameras putting a laptop computer under his jacket... When confronted the man became irate, knocked down an employee, drew a knife and ran for the door.
 
Outside on the sidewalk were four Marines collecting toys for the "Toys for Tots" program. Smith said the Marines stopped the man, but he stabbed one of the Marines, Cpl. Phillip Duggan, in the back; the injury did not appear to be severe.
 
After Police and an ambulance arrived at the scene Cpl. Duggan was transported for treatment. 
 
The subject was also transported to the local hospital with two 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 of the curb after stabbing the Marine.
 
Now that was a well written Police report.

I'm not sure your name decides what kind of a person you'll be, but good job Jarheads!

After further research, it turns out the story is mostly true.  The last paragraph

was added to embelish the event.  Turns out, Tyrone was tackled and held by the Marines until authorities arrived and arrested the dirt bag.  There is no mention of any broken bones in the orginal report.  Either way, good job Marines!

Ooh-Rah........
I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian

I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with "Guess" on it...so I said "Implants?"

Crowded elevators smell different to midgets.
