A 71-year-old Chicago liquor salesman fended off a group of young robbers. Willie Whitehead said he was walking to his car when four of the youths attempted to mug him while another stood watch at the corner. Whitehead said the muggers pulled on his briefcase and ripped his suit trying to reach his cellphone until he held a bottle of tequila over his head. Whitehead said, "I told them to come on with it. I was going to hit them with it." The attackers fled and Whitehead called police, who said the suspects were arrested in the area.
