What Happens When a Shoplifter Meets a Marine

This happened the other day at a Best Buy store in Augusta Georgia.  A shoplifter tried to make off with a lap-top computer… keyword… “TRIED”.

Tyrone Jackson of Augusta became irate with staff at the store while being confronted after his attempt to steal the computer was caught on surveillance video.  He pulled a knife on the employees and made a run for the door, where he met a group of four United States Marines collecting for “Toys for Tots”.

The Marines stopped the thief, but not before he stabbed one of them in the back. Cpl. Phillip Duggan’s injury was not life threatening.  The police and an ambulance showed up and Cpl. Duggan was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The shoplifter was also transported to a local hospital with two broken arms, a broken ankle, a broken leg, multiple missing teeth, a broken nose, broken ribs, multiple contusions assorted lacerations, and a broken jaw… injuries he received when he fell off the sidewalk after stabbing the Marine, according to the police report. (If you ask us, he was lucky.)
