[h1]Girl beats off muggers with marching band baton[/h1]QUARTZ HILL, Calif. - Don't mess with the marchingband. That's what California authorities are saying after a 17-year-old girl used her marching band baton to beat back two would-be muggers.
Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Michael Rust says the Quartz Hill girl was walking to schoolApril 24 when two men approached her from behind, tried to grab her coat and demanded money.

Instead, one got a punch in the nose and the other a kick to the groin. Rust says the girl then beat both of them with her band baton before she ranaway.

The men had not been caught. But Rust says there's a clear message to take from the encounter:

"The moral to this story is don't mess with the marching band girls, or you just might get what you deserve. Final score: marching band 2, thugs0."


They should have grabbed her, punched her in the head and then take her money.

Their criminal card has been revoked.
