Assailant suffers injuries from fall

Orville Smith, a store manager for Best Buy in Augusta, Ga., 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.

Fell off the curb, eh? Sounds like a perfectly logical explanation to me. He`s lucky he didn`t break his neck too.

I wonder if Best Buy has insurance for that? I hope that they install that curb at all of their stores.

Actually, that story is only partially true. Snopes.com has the details here along with a couple of videos:

Unfortunately, the injuries to the guy are not true. However, a more disturbing part of the story is as follows:

Attaway faced the maximum sentence on all assault and theft charges because he was a convicted felon with 30 prior arrests on his record.

30 arrests? What's wrong with THAT picture?
