The moral of this story?
Thugs should think twice before they mess with "victims' they assume are defenseless—otherwise they might earn themselves a special forces-level whipping.
Then again, when Christopher Andrew, 27, observed Gordon Besaw, 51, strolling one morning in Oklahoma City with Derby, his seeing-eye dog, Andrew must have been licking his chops.
Andrew moved toward Besaw—who was headed to the VA Medical Center for treatment—ready for some fun.
"He asked me, 'Are you blind?' I said yes," said Besaw, who has glaucoma.
"He said, 'I can make you see before you see God'."
Police say Andrew then punched Besaw in the head.
"He said, 'I can make you see again' and he punched me in the head again," Besaw said. "I'm like, 'Man, you're not going to like the way this is going to go'."
Little did Andrew know that Besaw is a retired U.S. Army Special Forces soldier.
Besaw says he let go of his German Shepherd's leash and used his military training to subdue Andrew until police arrived.
"I hip tossed him," said Besaw, who told Derby to "stay" only after Andrew was on the ground. "... and I began to choke him."
(If you don't know what a hip toss is, this clip shows how it's done...)
When police arrived, they found Besaw on top of Andrew.
Besaw's attacker is now facing felony charges for aggravated assault and battery, reports say.
