Midtown Man Finds Grenade

Posted By on Wed, Apr 18, 2007 at 4:00 AM

On Wednesday, at the corner of Overton and Evergreen, Ron Taylor was clearing his backyard, when he struck a hand grenade buried in his bushes — with an ax!

That unfortunate blow could have cost Taylor his life, but luckily the grenade hadn’t been activated. After dropping his ax and backing away very quickly, Taylor called 911. The area was evacuated and the bomb was exploded, leaving a gaping hole in Taylor’s now very empty backyard. No one was hurt in the incident. For extra tidbits and juicy misspellings, WREG-TV Memphis has more.
