This criminal fail is embarrassing on so many levels.
And he learned pretty quickly that, ninety-five or not… a marine is a marine. And not to be messed with.
The dog alerted 95-year old Fred to a would-be burglar’s attempt to break down the back door and gain access to the house.
Fred, naturally, went to investigate.
He found a 53-year old Gary Wells staring back at him, and he said Wells threatened to kill his dog if Fred did not hand over his wallet.
In his own words: “I wasn’t scared. I was so damn mad.” Fred refused to hand over the wallet.
They started wrestling, and Fred’s 51-year-old daughter, hearing the scuffle, came to check it out.
Somehow, Wells got his hands on the wallet, and made a break for it. Fred’s daughter was right on his heels.
[Well done, Dad!]
“I was mad because of what he did to my dad,” Mary said. “We jumped over two fences and ran through 12 yards. It was just reflexes. I guess it rubbed off from my father.”
She caught up with him as he tried to scale a chain-link fence — which wasn’t hard because she described him as pretty slow — and pinned him down until the police arrived.
Police showed up to arrest him, and he was found to have 9 cufflinks associated with another burglary earlier on.
He was charged with a felony.
Fred and his daughter, however, were absolutely badass. We applaud them. They embodied the kind of go-get-em spirit this book was written to inspire:
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
Here’s a shirt for real men (and women, too):
Why be average? It’s so overrated.
Everyone does that.
