FOXNews.com - Foxlife - Out There - Priest Beats Up Would-Be Robbers

'He had threatened me that he had a knife,' Foley told the TV station. 'I had to physically keep his hand away from the knife so I wouldn't be harmed. So I put him basically in a half-nelson and held him to the ground.'

Reference - Way to go priest dude! If he just woulda asked, he woulda received. Instead, he stole, so he... received something else. Does a half-nelson in self-defense fit into the pacifism category?
