Roanoke, Virginia – A J.C. Penney security guard followed a shoplifting suspect to the mall parking lot and fired a single shot in an effort to stop him. The man was detained until police arrived. (Source)
No word on whether the Segway sustained any damage. :P
A definitely case of Paul Blart Syndrome.
Why the heck does a mall security guard have a gun anyway? I didn’t think mall security had guns anywhere in the country. My guess is it was probably his personal weapon which he carried regardless of his employer’s rules.
He likely caused a shitstorm of problems for himself, all because he was too proud to let some scumbag take some insured goods that were not even his. Was it really worth it?
