Who would steal a Vietnam veteran’s prosthetic leg?
Police in Philadelphia are looking for a woman who allegedly ran off with Sonny Forriest Jr.’s fake limb outside Lincoln Financial Field during the Eagles game on Sunday night. Forriest often entertains Eagles fans with his singing outside the stadium, according to CNN affiliate WPVI.
Forriest told police that he took off his leg because it was hurting him. It was on the back of his motorized wheelchair when an intoxicated woman in Eagles gear jumped in his lap and broke his microphone, he told CNN affiliate KYW. The woman, who appeared to be in her 20’s, then grabbed the leg and ran off.
“She said, ‘I will pay you for (the microphone).’ I said, ‘That’s all right, baby, go ahead and have a good time,’ and then she disappeared,” Forriest said.

Eagles fans are savages. Stealing a poor mans prosthetic leg.
