Jorts saves the day!

Here's an exciting little story from the forbidden land of Kentucky, USA. It seems that Josh Harrellson (recall that Harrellson was drafted by the Knicks, which was once a basketball organization) was minding his own business outside a bar in Lexington when a menace presented itself. A man who appeared to be intoxicated made his way into a car and promptly left no doubt that he was, indeed, quite drunk. From WKYT, via TwitterCats UKAndrew and SAndersonNOB:

"All of a sudden he was coming right at us," he said.

Harrellson says he and his friends immediately jumped into action.

"I just pushed everybody out of the way, and then bam - right into my truck," said Harrellson.

He says the man rammed another car, then hit his truck a second time. That's when, Harrellson says, they knew they had to do something.

"About four or five of us guys jumped on the truck and reached in there and turned the keys off and just tried to make sure he wasn't going anywhere," he said.

The police were called, nobody (besides Josh's truck, which sources tell me is named "Lewis") was hurt, and the day was saved. It doesn't sound like the mope should've even gotten that far, but big ups to Harrellson and company for making the right decision. Click through for more details (there were kids in the car!), a video clip (see the car damage, plus a near-full reading of the article if you're illiterate like me!), and an outpouring of much-deserved-but-still-kinda-hilarious adoration in the comments section.

Great work, Jorts! Remember friends, don't drink or drive!
