    Carjacking suspect hit with frozen turkey


    Fuquay-Varina, N.C. — Authorities arrested a man whom bystanders say they hit with a frozen turkey when he carjacked a woman's sedan outside a Fuquay-Varina grocery store Sunday.

    The man stole money from a BP gas station at Ten-Ten Road and US. Highway 401 shortly before noon, Garner police said. He then crossed Ten-Ten to the parking lot of a Harris Teeter store and approached Irene Moorman Bailey loading groceries in her car.

    Witnesses told police that the man started beating Bailey in the face, trying to get her keys.

    “The lady was being beaten on the ground. She was lying on the ground and the guy was on top of her – physically hitting her,” shopper Randy Owens said.

    Bystanders intervened and hit the man in the head with a frozen turkey that Bailey bought, police said.

    “I was just grocery shopping, like any other day, and I happened to come out and I saw all this chaos that just had happened,” shopper Leanne Sweet said.

    “Several people interceded and tried to get him away from her,” Owens said.

    The man managed to get into Bailey's 2001 Nissan Maxima and hit five other cars while escaping from the parking lot, officers said.

    “He backed across and he hit the Cadillac and our car, and hit another car that was parked,” Owens said.

    "My bumper's cracked and the whole side is dented in," Sweet said.

    Officers found Fred Ervin, 30, in Bailey's car, Fuquay-Varina police said. Ervin was taken to WakeMed with a serious head wound. He was listed in fair condition Sunday evening.

    When Ervin is released, police said he will face these charges: assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, robbery, driving with a revoked license, hit and run and larceny.

    "Sad is what it is, especially during the holiday season,” Owens said.

    The Wake County Sheriff's Office and Garner and Fuquay-Varina police departments responded to the incident. The BP is in Garner town limits, and the Harris Teeter is in Fuquay-Varina.

    It would have been so much easier if a permit holder could have 'ended' this guy's crime spree...permanently.

    He'll be back in business in a few years.

    It's nice to see bystanders get involved once in a while. There are so many stories out there while they just watched....

    What a chicken he must have been!

    Yes, I fear this sod's going to be out and about again, in the future. Though, he's got a lot of charges to answer for, right now. Sounds like a handful of years at minimum, more if he's a prior convict with a record of violence. One can only hope.

    Fast forward to the jail cell. Usual bunch of visitors. Somone looks at this guy's swollen face. "Who kicked your ass?" "A turkey...it was frozen."
    Wonder if he'll pass on the bird at Thanksgiving.

    I wonder what caliber the turkey was?

    Cool wonder if they had a permit to open carry that turky
    Actually it was still in the plastic grocery bag, so it was being carried concealed. Granted the carrier may have been printing, but I it doesn't appear anyone was alarmed by the fact.

    Behind bars, one can only hope he gets multiple helpings of "stuffing" ... daily.

    +1 on that. It sure would have been better. Could have possibly saved on some vehicle damage as well.

    Just my opinion, I could be wrong.

    I believe the fowl was properly concealed until the incident unfolded which, it seems, was properly and lawfowly deployed.

    This just confirms the arguement, bigger is better. A 17# Butterball would had MUCH more stopping power that the 8# Swanson the shopper was packing

    I've never seen a case in which so much physical damage was done just "giving someone the bird".
