Goodwill Toward Men - Iowa Version

As a follow-up to the story below, here's another demonstrating the Christmas spirit.

Council Bluffs police said a man was injured when he was robbed by someone he had bought beer for on Christmas Day.

Jerry Smith said after he bought beer for three unknown people, he was approached by them again. One of the people demanded money from him. He was hit in the head and blacked out for a few seconds. When he awoke, Smith said $2 he had in his pocket was gone.

Police said he was treated at a local hospital for a 2½ inch cut on his forehead.

Don't honk in Milwaukee. Don't buy beer for someone in Council Bluffs. Got it?
