Big bag blocks bullet

Not long ago we told you the story of the oversized purse as weapon.

Here's the story of the overstuffed bag as protector.

Elizabeth Pittenger, a Tennessee college student, was walking to her car Thursday when a man demanded said purse, along with her cell phone and laptop, according to the Associated Press.

She fought the man, but he fired.

Police found the bullet in the purse, with an umbrella, a punctured case and a calculator.

Orlando Edmiston, 20, was arrested and charged with attempted murder, attempted armed robbery and possession of a weapon on school property, the story said.
