Shirtless guy fights off armed robber, protects moped4/14/2012
This video of a Wild West-style stickup in South Bend, Ind., looks like footage from an action movie, not a security camera. Timothy Gramza is the shirtless man here, dubbed a "hero" in news reports, who valiantly/foolhardily fights off a thief trying to steal a moped belonging to Gramza's 70-year-old buddy. The unbelievable footage shows the suspect stroll past the bike, return for a second look and then have a seat on the moped. Gramza attempts to subdue the suspect, who's shown brandishing a pistol, and Gramza repeatedly reaches toward his pocket, where his own gun is stowed. In a Chuck Norris-esque conclusion, Gramza fights off the intruder, and as the suspect scurries off, fires off six shots at him.
How would you have handled the situation?
