Army veteran and security guard Charles Sluter is recovering after losing a finger while busting up a drug deal in the parking lot of the J. Douglas Galyon Depot:

Sluder said he remains in the Army Reserve. That he has been to war, only to lose one finger, and maybe two, in Greensboro, wasn’t lost on him Saturday.

“I told my partner, all this I’ve been through in my life, and it ends up happening at the Depot.”

What’s lost on me is why anyone would pull off a drug deal at the Depot. Sluder and his partner zoomed into PT Cruiser with a bunch of baggies, and the driver gunned it when Sluder approached, taking him for a ride on the hood before he rolled off.
