Vietnam Vet’s Prosthetic Leg Gets Stolen by Drunk Woman at NFL Game

Vietnam veteran Sonny Forriest, Jr. was at the parking lot outside the Philadelphia Eagles game this weekend––he apparently frequents these games with a microphone to sing outside––when a drunk woman ran up to him and made off with his prosthetic leg.

According to WPVI, a young, drunk woman ran over to Forriest, proceeding to jump on him and break his microphone. As he recounts it, “She said, ‘I will pay you for it.’ I said, ‘That’s alright baby go ahead and have a good time,’ and then she disappeared.”

Oh, she disappeared all right. And so did the prosthetic leg.

Forriest had set it to the side of his wheelchair, where the woman grabbed it. Luckily, police found it hours later on the subway, and it was returned to its rightful owner.

No one has been arrested yet, though there is reportedly footage of the drunk thief in question.
