At Least It Wasn't Tuna Fish

WHOA. NOW HERE'S SOMETHING you don't see every day.

According to this news report, a criminal on trial in Beaumont, Texas, successfully disabled the electroshock-belt he was wearing ... with a ham sandwich. The unidentified man, who was later convicted on aggravated robbery charges, proceeded to attack a witness who had testified to his anti-social behavior.

You know, I'm now confused as to whether I'm proud or embarrassed that my father was born and raised in Beaumont, TX. A ham sandwich? How did he have food in court? No megusta, senor.
