ASU student pummels would-be robber

Arizona State University student Alex Botsios said he had no problem giving a nighttime intruder his wallet and guitars.
When the man asked for Botsios’ laptop, however, the first-year law student drew the line.
“I was like, 'Dude, no – please, no!” Botsios said. “I have all my case notes…that’s four months of work!”

He was just like, ‘I’m going to smash your head in,’" Botsios said.
At that point, the law student wrestled the bat away and began punching Saucedo, Botsios said.
“I basically grabbed him and threw him this way, and he held onto the bat so it threw him to the ground,” he said.

Police said they took Saucedo to the hospital for stitches before they arrested him on charges of armed robbery and kidnapping. Other than a bruised knuckle and a few scratches, Botsios was unharmed.

1.) kudos to Mr. Botsios for fighting back.

2.) dude! you have a whole semester’s work on your laptop and you don’t have it backed up? Flash drives are cheaper than a pizza for heaven’s sake.
