An Associate Press video posted on YouTube demonstrates another reason why HTC’s DROID Incredible is, well… incredible. John Garber was exiting Club Halo in Atlanta, were he works as a valet, when he suddenly became caught in a hail of gunfire. Two patrons who had been thrown out of the establishment got into an argument outside the club that ultimately lead to a short shoot-out. Mr. Garber was struck in the chest by a bullet, which penetrated his coat and was ultimately stopped by the battery of his HTC DROID Incredible. The above image is a chilling reminder of how lucky Mr. Garber is. Hit the jump to check out the video, complete with the owner’s first-hand account. DROID does… stop bullets.
UPDATE: While it was unclear from the original AP video/report which mobile device Mr Garber was using — we assumed the DROID Incredible because of the battery color, size — it has been made clear by subsequent, local news reports that the device in question was actually the HTC EVO 4G from Sprint. We apologize for the misinformation. More →
