The Charleston Gazelle

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Charleston man was nearly robbed Sunday afternoon while walking down the street.

Michael Jonas, 51, of Charleston, was walking along Chandler Drive with another man at about 12:20 p.m. Sunday when the two were approached by a young white man asking for money, according to Sgt. Eric Hodges of the Charleston Police Department.

Jones told the man to "Get a job and get your own money," Hodges said.

The man pull out a knife, but then paused. He then thoughtfully stated, "You know, you're right. I'm a lazy-ass motherfucker that's addicted to meth and my life choices are the reason why I'm such a piece of worthless shit. I'm going to look for gainful employment tomorrow."

Hodges said the man then shook his hand, thanked him profusely and then ran off into the woods.

The investigation is continuing.
