    February 23, 2007 -- A retired 70-year-old Marine killed a mugger with his bare hands after a tour bus of U.S. senior citizens was held up in the Costa Rican city of Limon, authorities said yesterday. The retiree squeezed the 20-year-old mugger in a headlock, broke his clavicle and choked him, police said.
    The thief's two accomplices, who were armed, fled as other retirees on the bus started defending themselves. The group then drove the unconscious mugger to a local Red Cross clinic, where he was declared dead.
    Local police named the former Marine as Allan Clady, but could not say where in the United States he resides.

    The 12 tourists involved in the incident on Wednesday were on a stopover from the Carnival Cruise ship Liberty.
    Local Police Chief Luis Hernandez said no one would be charged in the incident.
    "They were in their right to defend themselves," he said.

    Reminds me of a T-shirt that a good friend of mine wears;

    "Not as lean, Not as mean, but still a Marine!!"
