Conway attempt to steal Salvation Army kettle

From the dumb criminal and/or crazy-brave victim files comes this story from yesterday's Log Cabin Democrat. A Salvation Army bell ringer told police that he was collecting donations in front of the local J.C. Penney store on Tuesday night when a man in a red Camaro pulled up and offered him a dollar. When the ringer turned to thank the driver after putting the buck in his kettle, he found himself staring down the barrel of a handgun, with the driver demanding his kettle. The worker refused, then told cops he and the gunman engaged in an intense staredown for awhile before the robber finally gave up and went away, $1 poorer.
