Connecticut clerk badly hurt trying to prevent sign theft

Actor David Hasselhoff is most famous for his role on the long-running television show "Baywatch" in which he played a lifeguard who rushed to the rescue of swimmers in distress, but a Connecticut convenience store worker was seriously injured recently while rushing to the rescue of Hasselhoff - or rather, a cardboard cut-out of the actor. According to news reports, the store clerk saw people cutting down and trying to steal a cardboard sign bearing the likeness of the actor and rushed out to stop them. As the pranksters drove off, their car apparently struck the clerk, dragging him and causing him to hit his head, police said.
