While officers were detouring traffic after an accident, witnesses say a 54-year-old man became angry at a motorist and began honking his horn. The man then reportedly exited his vehicle carrying a metal baron and approached the vehicle ahead of him yelling violent threats. The driver of the car in front the enraged man feared for his safety and drew his pistol. Police officers intervened and arrested the irate man wielding the baton. No injuries were reported during the incident. (Johnson City Press, Kingsport, Tenn., 10/15/13)

Two armed men stormed into Mark and Leslie Perez's jewelry store, Hardy Nix Jewelers, and attempted to rob them at gunpoint. Mark Perez, however, fought back. He pulled out his own firearm and fired. The gunmen returned fire, striking a female customer who has since been treated for her injuries and released from the hospital. When one suspect was shot by Perez, the other fled the store and is reportedly still at large. The would-be robber who sustained a gunshot wound died at the scene.
