Wallet, Cell Phone Stop Stray Bullet: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police said Brian Harris, 45, was outside his apartment building for a cigarette Sunday night in the Edgewood neighborhood when one of several bullets fired in a nearby alley pierced the stomach pocket of his hooded sweatshirt, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.


The .380-caliber round entered his wallet and went through his driver`s license, a bank card and a $10 bill before shattering the glass screen of his smartphone."


Some are speculating that a Guardian Angel saved this dude`s life, but maybe it was just God telling the fool to stop smoking.

If Harris hadn`t gone outside to smoke, his smartphone wouldn`t be shattered, and he wouldn`t have to go to the DMV to get a new driver`s license.

I`m so broke that my thin wallet wouldn`t be enough to stop a bullet; I`d be stone cold broke and dead.

Hopefully his close brush with death will persuade Harris to give up smoking.
