    New And Improved Bulletproof Vest

    I have to start wearing this!

    WALTERBORO, S.C. (AP) -- A South Carolina man is thankful for a DVD that ended up taking a bullet for him. Colleton County Fire and Rescue Director Barry McRoy says he was leaving a Waffle House restaurant in Walterboro on Saturday morning when two men ran in fighting over a gun. Police say a bullet hit one of the struggling men, shattered a window and then hit McRoy.

    The bullet hit a DVD McRoy was carrying in his pocket. He suffered a bruise but didn't realize he had been shot. As he told a police officer what happened he noticed a bullet hole in his jacket, the shattered DVD case and a piece of the bullet.

    "I was saved by a DVD," McRoy says. "How lucky can you get?"

    One man was arrested on assault and battery and gun charges.

    The DVD was nicked. It was a gift from an employee who had recorded a TV show about fire extinguishers

    Wow that's pretty amazing...maybe I'll start taping them all over myself under my clothes instead of wearing real armor.

    Perhaps it was a recording of some "heavy metal" group!

    I am sorry...I couldn't resist

    Kinda nifty sounding, but I wouldn't expect a DVD to stop much under under more "direct" circumstances.

    I guess fire extinguishers do save lives.
