Joel Quintero, Occupation: Man: Drives Away Armed Robber Neil Johnson With Machete

|When a man burst into their home with a gun, Joel and Christine Quintero decided they weren't gonna let him rob them without a fight|
Johnson (pictured top) grabbed her by the hair and threw her to the ground, pointing the gun at her head and telling Joel, "I'm going to put a bullet through your girl's head." But that's when Joel decided he wasn't going down that easily either.
As Johnson was distracted with Christine, Joel grabbed a machete, which seems to be a standard decorative accoutrement in American households these days. Then he went on the attack.
He began to chase Johnson, who ran out of the home and began firing shots at Joel as he fled. But by that time police had come a calling, complete with K-9 pursuit. Joel wasn't hit, but Johnson was found hiding behind a trash can near the University of Central Florida campus.
It was probably a better fate than being caught by Joel. "At that moment, all I wanted to do was get my hands on him because he really grabbed my girl by the hair," he told News 13.
Shitbag Johnson, he's been charged with armed occupied burglary with a firearm.
As for Joel, it has been said, so it is written. Joel Quintero, Occupation: Man. (Special thanks to reader Mecede for the tip.)
