From the Missoulian:
A Kalispell man chased down the thief who stole his pickup truck and held him for police despite being stabbed twice in the arm. And he kept his cowboy hat on the whole time, said Kalispell Police Detective Kevin McCarvel.
“The suspect confronts him and brandishes the knife and … threatens to stab him and proceeds to do so,” despite the fact that the truck owner had a gun, McCarvel said.
The truck owner was asked what kept him from shooting the thief and he replied, “‘Well, he wasn’t stabbing me for real,'” McCarvel said.
