Man's Wallet Stops Bullet

A Modesto, Calif., store clerk was shot in the buttocks during an altercation with would-be robbers, but his wallet saved the day.

Fox40 reports that the unidentified man's wallet kept his moneymaker from sustaining any damage.

Following the shooting, the unidentified three suspects fled the scene in a silver or gray Honda, News10.net reports. The suspects are currently still at-large.

This isn't the only time unexpected objects have played a life-saving role when guns start firing.

MSNBC reported on an incident in Indianapolis in which bullets were stopped by a watermelon and a bible.

And just last month, a Kentucky police officer's badge kept a bullet from causing serious damage, according to Fox News.
