I know some men don’t always like to wear their wedding bands. But a man in Jackson, Mississippi proved why they always should.
Donnie Register has a big reason to be thankful he’s married right now. His wedding band deflected a bullet during a robbery and possibly saved his life.
Two men walked into Register’s antique store and asked to see a coin collection. When Register went to get the collection, one of the men pulled out a gun and demanded money. During the robbery, shots were fired and Register raised his left hand.
The police say that his wedding band deflected the bullet, probably saving his life.
“The bullet managed to go through two of his fingers without severing the bone. 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,” said his wife, Darlene Register.
I bet next time Darlene tells her husband to wear his ring, he will!
