Iraq vet takes down robber

I enjoy a good story about a foiled robbery as much as anyone, and Zach Thome’s takedown is no exception:

A 38-year-old who attempted to rob a Grand Rapids party good store was grabbed with lightning speed and floored by a heroic Iraq vet who happened to be the in store, a local Fox affiliate reports.

Zach Thome, a mixed martial arts-trained former soldier, put gunman Brandon Slanger, 38, in a rear naked choke hold and held him until police arrived.
