Gun Drawn in Bar!!

The following news was front-page material in Hong Kong recently:

Gun Drawn in Bar - Hong Kong: An anti-triad officer was disarmed in a Yau Ma Tei bar yesterday during a dispute over free drinks.

However, he later retrieved the service revolver with the help of 30 friends who allegedly stormed the bar on Nathan Road about 4am.

During the scuffle, the bar manager received a black eye and an injury to a finger.

A police spokesman would not confirm or deny the involvement of an officer attached to the anti-triad squad of a Kowloon police station.

I had to laugh. Can you imagine what our newspapers would look like if everytime a gun was drawn in a bar it was headlines? We don't have enough newsprint.
