De ce purtam verigheta?

JACKSON, Miss. – Donnie Register has a new reason to be thankful he’s married — police say his wedding band deflected a bullet and probably saved his life.

Two men walked into Register’s shop at The Antique Market on Saturday and asked to see a coin collection, police Sgt. Jeffery Scott said.

When Register retrieved the collection, one of the men pulled a gun and demanded money. A shot was fired as Register threw up his left hand, and his wedding ring deflected the bullet, police said.

“The bullet managed to go through two of his fingers without severing the bone,” said his wife, Darlene Register. “A part of the bullet broke off and is in his middle finger. The other part is in his neck, lodged in the muscle tissue. But it’s not life-threatening.”

She said she gives God all the credit.

Police were searching for the robbers, who Scott said “stole a substantial amount of cash.”
