    MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Don't knock those trendy, oversized purses - they could save your life, as one college student found out.

    Police say the contents in an oversized purse saved Elizabeth Pittenger, a 22-year-old Middle Tennessee State University student, by stopping a bullet during an attempted robbery.

    Pittenger was walking to her car on campus Thursday evening when a man confronted her and demanded her purse, cell phone and laptop, university Police Chief Buddy Peaster said. She fought the man off, but he fired a gunshot before fleeing.

    The bullet was found inside the purse, along with a calculator, umbrella and small case that had been punctured. Pittenger was not injured.

    Police nearby heard the gunshot and arrested Orlando Edmiston, 20. Officers found a .38 caliber handgun beneath a parked van.

    Edmiston was charged with attempted murder, attempted armed robbery and possession of a weapon on school property. He was being held at the Rutherford County jail on $32,500 bond.

    No one answered Monday at offices for Edmiston's court-appointed attorneys.

    I'd throw in discharge of a firearm within city limits.

    Criminals deserve to get every single charge thrown at them. Make them serve every single day consecutivly.

    If it hadn't been a "gun free zone" and the young lady had a pistol in her purse, there may not have been any need to charge the BG. He might be DOA right now.

    We really need to bring back the "Old Wild West ways".
