72-year-old veteran fights off pickpocket

GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. (Derek Drake) -- A 72-year-old veteran was no match for a would-be pickpocket and the altercation was all caught on camera.

Chet Dunham, 72, said he was just walking up the street after breakfast when he was passed, then approached by a 5-foot-10, 275-pound man. That man, Jeffery Jones, is seen in the video sizing Dunham up, then going for the man's right pocket.

That's when Dunham took his aluminum cane and reacted!
