AUGUSTA, GA - Orville Smith, a store manager for Best Buy in Augusta, Ga. told police he observed a customer, later identified as Tyrone Jackson of Augusta, on surveilance 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 sidealk were four Marines collecting toys for the Toys for Tots program. Smith said the Marines stopped the man, but he stabbed one of them, Cpt. Phillip Duggan, in the back; the injury did not appear to be severe.

After police and an ambulance arrived at the scene, Cpt. Duggan was taken 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 the curb after stabbing the Marine," according to a police report.

Nah, don't feel bad.

1. It's a good story.

2. If it hasn't happened yet, it will.

This “story” has been around for years. It made the rounds in email forwards, now it comes to FR.

It’s not real.

...slipped and fell ... lather, rinse, repeat.

I guess stuff like that happened many moons ago when my dad was an MP.

H’mm ... people can be so clumsy.

Yes the story is real. Some of the details aren’t. The assailants name was Tracey Attaway but the location and marines name are accurate. He was sentenced to life in prison for it. He had 30 previous charges.
