Remember the 300-pound robot security guard that hit and rolled over a toddler in California last year[1]? Well, the bot or rather, the same type of bot got a taste of its own medicine last week, after an drunk dude knocked it to the ground. Jason Sylvain, a 41-year-old man, was arrested for attacking the robot, which was patrolling a parking lot in Mountain View, California, ABC7 News reports[2].

The robot, built by a company called Knightscope, clocks in at five feet tall, and spins and occasionally whistles, ABC7 News also reports. I think this is a pretty pathetic incident because it shows how spineless the drunk guys in Silicon Valley really are, because they attack a victim who doesn t even have any arms, one Mountain View resident told them of the incident. Sylvain is up against charges of both prowling and being drunk in public.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) – An Avon police officer who shot and killed an attacker at a central Minnesota mall last September has been honored by the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association. Officer Jason Falconer received the association s Officer of the Year award Monday night. Falconer, a firearms instructor and competitive shooter, was off-duty and shopping at Crossroads Center in St. Cloud when Dahir Adan, dressed in a security guard uniform, stabbed and injured 10 people at the mall.
