Liquor Salesman, 71, Fights Off Dastardly Thugs With Bottle Of Tequila

By Robert Paul Reyes

"For liquor salesman Willie Whitehead, the tools of his trade came in handy when a gang of youths surrounded him in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

As the muggers pulled on his briefcase and ripped his suit, grabbing for his cell phone, the 71-year-old Whitehead said he lifted a sample bottle of tequila over his head."


Chicago Tribune

The young punks took off running, the elderly gentleman called the cops, and the suspects were apprehended.

"Willie Whitehead", what a wonderful name for an old man, you got the alliteration thing plus he probably does have a white head.

Whitehead was the victim of a robbery last year, and he wasn`t about to let the bad guys get the best of him this time.

Whitehead probably gulped that sample bottle of tequila after his frightening ordeal.

Dude, I commend you for your courage, but maybe it`s time to retire?
