In August last year, neighbors Gregory, 25-year-old bartender, could not sleep all night: MakKalium made a big party, and the district filled the drunken shouts of his guests. Sure the power is not just neighbors, a bartender turned to God to grant them temporary deafness, but as a result it was decided to call the police, which calm the riotous youth.

MakKaliumu such developments did not like, so he decided to take revenge on neighbors. By choosing to pensioner Frank Corti and armed with a knife, he went to see him.

However, the "talk" could not: he saw in the hallway of his thugs with the blade at the ready, Corti uninvited guest showed his signature technique - a right hook. A pair of strikes - and defeated the aggressor is writhing on the floor, well retiree could only call the police.

At the hearing, Mr. Corti said the events which led to such a denouement. "I woke up at night from the noise - in the yard next door heard screams and loud music, and yet constantly slammed the door. However, I called the police only 6:30 in the morning, after a drunken MakKalium began to break in my door," - said the pensioner .

"After half an hour, I saw my neighbor in the hallway. In his hands was a knife, even more likely, not a knife, bayonet, and Allen. He rushed at me, but I had to retreat, and the attacker missed. I managed to grab his wrist and pressed to the wall and asked to throw the weapon, but he did not obey. Then I shouted to my wife that she called the police. At that moment I could not figure out what to do next, I was terribly embarrassed, "- says Corti.

I had to calm him down a couple more punches, but believe me, I did not gave a single gram of fun "- concluded boxer.

At trial MakKaliumu failed to elicit sympathy, despite the fact that he was like a miracle survivor victim accident. "He got what he deserved" - pripechatat judge. Agreed with her and members of the jury: "And what more he hoped vlamyvayas the house of a pensioner with a weapon?" Fortunately, Mr. Corti could he stand up for themselves. "

Corti himself after the meeting with pleasure giving interviews. "When I saw the knife in his hands, at first I was frightened. But then pulled himself together and decided to give the attacker to fight back. In the end, if you do not protect their property, then someone will do it for you?" - Said the pensioner.

The bartender gave 4,5 years in prison - he was found guilty of committing a burglary. However, the most terrible punishment for him, appear to have become "ornaments" that it has awarded Corti - scars that seem to remain for a lifetime. Himself retired, despite the age difference is almost three times, he showed himself a real hero, and escaped with just a few bruises.
