'.38 Special Samaritan' Arrested for Aiming at iPhone Thieves
As two crooks escaped the store, laden with almost $3,000 worth of cell phones, bystander Roger Witter felt obligated to intervene. The 48-year old, strapped with a legally registered .38 special, decided to un-holster his weapon and fire two "controlled" shots at the getaway car. Both shots missed, the vehicle escaped and police decided to apprehend the would-be vigilante on charges of reckless endangerment and the unlawful use of a weapon.
Despite his unfortunate and misguided attempts at heroism, Witter still asserts -- perhaps in hopes of landing a gig on the Apple task force -- that he "would do it again." But, despite his bravado, Witter probably should have just stepped aside; like so many other arrogant and foolish burglars, these AT&T assailants will probably just incriminate themselves by doing something unbelievably stupid within the next few days.
