One for the Red and Gold!

OK, Here's a post for JJ, Gunz, Cary and Fred... OORAH! Devildawg, Yut Yut, Semper fi!

“A man who had just been released from jail was sent right back Monday after police say he picked the wrong store to attempt a robbery.
When he got to the counter he asked the female clerk for a carton of cigarettes. But after he received them, he walked out without paying.The clerk told another female clerk who followed him outside the doors and told him to stop. Instead, the man turned around and punched the clerk in the face, Quezada said. Source

Former Marine takes down man after clerk is hit continues…

When the man saw Sjo-strom coming at him, he took a swing at him, too. But the attacker quickly found out he was no match for the bulky Sjo-strom. Sjostrom is a former Marine who taught hand-to-hand combat and currently teaches a course on Russian kettlebells, or the martial art of strength training, at the Sports Mall in Murray.

“I grabbed him, threw him on the ground, put his hands behind his back, sat on him and waited for the cops to come,” Sjostrom said. In just a matter of a few seconds Sjostrom had the man pinned. When the man realized he had no chance, Sjostrom said he became “pretty quiet.”

“Anybody would have done the same thing,” he said. “Another guy in the store said he was in the Army and asked if I needed any help.”With a grin, Sjostrom replied to the man, “The Marines got here first.”
