Approximately 30 minutes later, the customer who purchased the pint, returned to the inside of the store and displayed the fingertip to the General Manager. The General Manager attempted to retrieve it and rush it to the hospital. Unfortunately, the customer refused to give it to her and declared that he would be calling the TV stations and an attorney as he exited the store.
Now it seems to me that the person who lost the finger has pretty decent grounds to sue the guy who wouldn't return his finger. Grand Theft Finger perhaps.
