A Tennessee man just taught his attacker why you don’t bring a fork to gun fight.
After church Sunday, the man, who has a valid carry permit in the state, and another individual headed over to the Suburban Lodge hotel in Nashville. In the elevator up to their room, they were joined by 48-year-old James Grisham. When they reached their floor, the gun owner and his friend went one way, Grisham went the other.
However, a few minutes later, while opening the door to his room, the man says he was attacked by Grisham. At the time, the gun owner believed Grisham was trying to stab him with a knife. Thankfully, the man was able to knock Grisham down and retrieve his handgun, a Glock 19, from a table inside his room.
The gun owner shot Grisham in the bicep. The attacker tried to flee; however, the man was able to catch up to him and held him at gunpoint until police arrived.
In his attempt to run away, Grisham dropped his weapon of choice: a fork.
He was arrested on two charges of aggravated assault…with a deadly weapon.
Glock: 1, Fork: 0
