A 63-year-old guy named David Miller works at a gas station in Tampa.  And earlier this month, he got SUCKER-PUNCHED by some jerk who was trying to buy beer after the 3:00 A.M. cutoff.

The guy looks like he’s in his 20s or early 30s, and there’s security footage of the whole thing.

He starts arguing with David.  Then he gets nose-to-nose with him, clocks him HARD with a right hook, and leaves the store.  Last we heard, the cops were still looking for the guy.

Anyway, David got right back up.  But he decided to go to the hospital for a CT scan to make sure the guy didn’t do any real damage.

And it turns out the sucker-punch may have actually saved David’s LIFE.

When doctors looked at the scan, they didn’t find any major damage from the punch.  But they did spot a small TUMOR in his brain.  And because they found it so early, he should be okay.
