[Watch] – Marines Take Down Thug Without Even Messing Up Their Dress Blues

January 14, 2015

Fox News Insider:


Three U.S. Marine recruiters jumped into action last week when they heard a woman’s cries for help outside their Washington office.

Sgt. Ricardo Schebesta, Staff Sgt. Ben Shoemaker and Staff Sgt. Bryson Twigg rushed outside and thwarted an attempted robbery, even catching one of the suspects.

On “Fox and Friends” today, Schebesta explained that they were in the office when they heard a car honking.

Shoemaker said that they went outside to see a woman erratically driving over curbs in the parking lot.

He approached her and she said she was being robbed by two men who claimed they had a gun, and she asked the Marines for help.

Twigg said they then ran after the two fleeing suspects, not hesitating even though one had said he had a gun.

“I’ve been shot at before. It’s not as bad as everyone thinks,” Shoemaker said in an earlier interview. “Most people miss.”

Shoemaker said that the Marines gave chase across the street and caught up with one of the suspects.

“That’s when I put him in a wrist lock and Sgt. Schebesta blocked his back,” Shoemaker said.

He explained that he put the suspect in a standing wrist lock so he wouldn’t have to get on the ground in his dress blues.
