Carjacking Suspect Clubbed With Frozen Turkey

This takes turkey club to new heights.

Authorities said a good Samaritan used a frozen turkey to attack a man as he tried to carjack a woman at a North Carolina grocery story Sunday morning.

Police said 30-year-old Fred Louis Ervin of Raleigh stole money from a Garner BP gas station before running across the street to a Harris Teeter in Fuquay-Varina. There, he began beating Irene Moorman Bailey while trying to take her car. Other shoppers came to the woman's rescue, including one who hit Ervin with a frozen turkey.

Ervin managed to get away in Bailey's car, but was arrested a short time later.

He faces several charges including assault inflicting serious injury, larceny and hit and run. He was being treated at WakeMed Raleigh Campus.
