The sad part of that is WE will have to pay for all the hospital bills as a result of his slipping off the curb...actually it is probably worth it! Thanks for posting this story.

The moral of the story: Beware of curbs that have Marines nearby!!

Wow! I wonder what he came in contact with on the way down.

I call that righteous taxation for transporting stolen goods. I tip my hat to the Marines who provided assistance to man that fell off the curb. ;-)

Now that is one gem of an article. Not only do I like the police accounting of the events but the fact the newspaper included all of it as well. At last... truth in journalism. Bet the thief will be more careful about stabbing Marines while being near a curb.

Crime definitely does not pay, Stephen. ;)

Amazing...what was that thief thinking? Oh yeah- he wasn't! . Love it when karma happens. Merry Christmas!

Ah, the joys of winter. Careful that you don't slip. LOL

I would think he would have to fall off a bridge onto a concrete highway below to get those kinds of injuries...;-)

A police cover up that I am behind completely. Justice was served.

I believe that is pronounced U-rah. Not that I have any idea about Marines. Not as lean, never was mean but don't mess with him, Sweet Man.

You go, Marines. That's hilarious. Love, Janie

Hah - beware of Marines! This reminds me a bit of a story that happened a few years ago here in our county. The Sheriff's Department had caught a fugitive who had killed one deputy and injured another a day earlier. When the fugitive tried to escape, he was shot 68 times. When our Sheriff was asked why the criminal was shot 68 times, he explained: "That's all the bullets we had."

I guess that will teach him to be more aware of his surroundings.

Absolutely priceless. The few, the proud, the Marines!

Oh yes, I've seen those curbs. They are pretty high with a lot of bumps on the way down, ha ha ha ha. That's a real funny story, ha ha ha ha ha. I'm sure the marines were only being friendly too, ha ha ha. Seasonal greetings to you and your loved ones.

I think some more of these curbs are required all over the world!

We need a few of those type of curbs here in Tasmania to enforce some justice on some of the local scumbags
By: Tony McGurk on December 21, 2013
It really wasn't his day. He should have been more careful of that curb - they make them really high in Georgia. lol

And that's a good example of poetic justice!

Tyrone must have missed the days when they taught about good conduct and how you never pick a fight with US Marines. Figure he learned anything that day?
By: Tom Cochrun on December 21, 2013
That's bizarre. I'll steer clear of those Toys for Tots bins. Happy Holidays, Stephen. xoRobyn

Why couldn't I have written like that when I was a news reporter? I might have headlined the story, "Some Guys Get All the Breaks!"
By: Bruce Taylor/Catalyst on December 21, 2013
That's one hell of a fall! I'm still chuckling.
By: Bryan Jones on December 22, 2013
Sounds like there was more than one way to "curb" his behaviour.
By: Hilary on December 22, 2013
I sent this to a friend who works for the local PD, he is posting it on the BB.
