A South Carolina man is thankful for a DVD that ended up taking a bullet for him.

Colleton County Fire and Rescue Director Barry McRoy said he was leaving a Waffle House restaurant in Walterboro on Saturday morning when two men ran in fighting over a gun.

Police say a bullet hit one of the struggling men, shattered a window and then hit McRoy.

The bullet hit a DVD McRoy was carrying in his pocket. He suffered a bruise but didn't realize he had been shot. As he told a police officer what happened he noticed a bullet hole in his jacket, the shattered DVD case and a piece of the bullet.

"I was saved by a DVD," McRoy said. "How lucky can you get?"

One man was arrested on assault and battery and gun charges.

The DVD was nicked. The DVD — a gift from an employee who had recorded a TV show about fire extinguishers.

Maybe it had some really good scratch proofing on it.
