"Don't mess with the marching band girls."

That's according to Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Michael Rust.

Rust reports a 17-year-old high school band student beat two muggers with her baton.

Deputies say two men grabbed the girl by her coat and demanded money.

Deputies say the girl punched one of the men in the nose, kicked the other in the groin and beat both with her large baton.

Deputy Rust adds, "Final score: Marching band 2, thugs 0."
