Oops. That didn’t end well.
For the thug.
A father waiting for his daughter to be let out of school in Lansing noticed a van circling him a few times. Eventually, three people jumped out of that van, attempting the “Point-em-out, Knock-em-out” (‘Knockout’) game. One tried to taze him.
Tazor failed; the gun didn’t. Here you go: (Click here for Video)
(From the PCMD GAZETTE:) The victim was attacked by 17-year-old Marvell Weaver. But Weaver did more than try to knock his victim out, he tried to do it with a taser. Luckily for the victim, the taser didn’t work and he was able to protect himself with his concealed-carry .40 caliber pistol.
“He shoved something into my side. I wasn’t sure what it was. It had some force to it. I wasn’t sure if it was a knife or a gun,” said the victim.
Weaver was shot twice, in the leg and an inch away from his spine. He’s been sentenced to a year in jail for the attack, but he admits he’s getting off easy.
“It was just a lesson learned. I wish I hadn’t played the game at all,” said Weaver.
One for the good guys…
