      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

      Ok, so this man was seriously wounding a woman. I will be getting my CCW soon, and while I'm sure that this subject has probably been addressed on other threads, what would be the proper response if I happened to be carrying? Truth is, I'm not a small guy, so provided I didn't see a weapon, I'd probably have just tackled him and (hopefully with the help of other bystanders) forced him into submission. But hypothetically, what would you carriers do?

      Oh, and I know that having a license to carry doesn't make me a LEO, but it sounds like he potentially could have killed the poor woman. Thoughts?
