Saturday morning feel good story

| April 26, 2014

Chief Tango sends us our feel good story this morning from Kentucky where Shaun Lige and his girlfriend were preparing to their jobs when they let their dog out and a masked man forced his way in their home firing his BB gun;

“I still got the BB in my neck,” said Lige, pointing to the indention on this throat.

They say he kept asking for all their money. And Lige believes the man meant to tie them up.

“Came with zip ties…had three zip ties tied into one,” Lige said.

Lige says he and girlfriend decided to fight back.

“We start to tustle..this is a big guy…he gets outside…and that’s when we go for our gun,” said Lige.

The man ran out. Lige gave chase.

“He tried to get away..I pumped off a few rounds at him,” Lige said.

They say he wasn’t hit…but they were able to tackle him.

“We beat him down with a stick. I didn’t want to kill the guy,” he said.

A neighbor ran out to help.

“Like I say, this is a big guy, it’s raining, I’m out in my boxers. And I was telling him…’you making me miss work for this!’” he said.

So the police came and arrested 34-year-old Anthony Alcorn, someone that Shaun said he used to know.

    Best line of the story, ’you making me miss work for this!’”

    This kid sounds like a pisser.

    IDK, getting shot with anything including a bbgun might not make me to anxious to pick up a stick to deal with it if the guy is breaking into my home.

    How do you “used to know” someone? Either you know him or you don’t

    I dunno. Every time I read “BB Gun” in the commission of a crime, I always think about Chevy Chase holding John Candy at (BB) gun point in “Vacation.”

    “That ain’t a real gun, it’s a BB gun!”

    “It could put an eye out. Break the skin and cause a bad infection.”

    Still, I’m glad the thuggo got the beat down he deserved.

    Sheesh! The both of ’em. Bringing “knives” to a “gun” fight.
