Shmuck of the Week: The perv who got taken down by a guy in a wheelchair

Any day that includes a trip to Wal-Mart is bound to suck, low-low prices notwithstanding. But when it ends with getting your ass kicked by a guy in a wheelchair and then a trip to jail, it's time to change your lucky socks.

Kevin Salyers, 34, was in a Westminster Wal-Mart recently when he decided that a discount superstore was a fine place to dust off his creep moves. According to police, he sexually assaulted a girl in the store before trying to flee, probably to a nearby Toys "R" Us. (It's unclear what, exactly, they believe he did.)

As Salyers tried to bail, a witness yelled for someone to stop him. That's when Cameron Aulner, wheelchair-bound from a Christmas-light accident, rolled over to Salyers and tackled him, holding him there until police showed up.

Aulner has been hailed by most of the Internet as a hero, which he most certainly is.

And Salyers? He's been charged with sexual assault. Way less importantly, he's our Shmuck of the Week.
