Battle of the tools

When your only tool is a hammer, every criminal's head looks like a nail.
A Bexar County Sheriff's Office spokesperson told News 4 WOAI a neighbor spotted two young women in a pickup truck outside an elderly woman's home and called one of the woman's relatives. Knowing that the elderly woman was not at home and that no one else should be there, the relative quickly drove over to check it out. When he arrived, he saw a young woman going through items inside a Chevrolet Suburban owned by his relative and confronted her. The woman then ran inside the home, and the man followed her. Once inside, the man discovered a second woman who appeared to be searching the house for valuables.

The man, who is in his late 50's, got into a scuffle with both of the women, and one of the women hit him in the head with a crowbar. The man used a hammer to defend himself and hit one of the women in the head with it. The two women then grabbed his truck keys and took off in their pickup truck, leaving the man unable to follow them.

The man was treated at the scene. No word on how the young ladies fared.

Yikes! Up next, a cat fight in the all-women prison. Those are some tough gals right there.

I'll tell you what, one of the worst fights I ever saw was a girl fight at a concert in the old Convention Center Arena. And I'm not talking one-on-one. It looked like two girl gangs ran into each other at the concert and decide to rumble right there. Fists flying, blood, ripped clothing, busted teeth -- and that was just me trying to get away from them! You should've seen how the girls came out!
