Saved by the Phone

From the Herald Sun:


A MOBILE phone carried in a shirt pocket saved a man’s life when it stopped a crossbow arrow fired by a drug dealer, a court heard today.

Michael Brown escaped with nothing more than an injured finger in the attack outside Ipswich, west of Brisbane, on December 16, 2002, the Supreme Court was told.

Prosecutor Tim Ryan said Brown, 33, was targeted by Robert Troy Scanlon, who believed him to be a police operative.
