A quintet of youthful extortionists threatened Council
Bluff, Iowa, motel owner Rex Nelson with a tire tool and demanded
his wallet. But they didn't count on the reaction of Nelson's wife
Velma, who came to his rescue, driving the five away with a pistol.
Police caught the criminals later on a highway outside town.
