Larry the Cable Guy used what is sometimes referred to as “old-man strength” to break an Army veteran’s humerus during an arm-wrestling match.

Comedian Daniel Lawrence Whitney of “Git-R-Done” fame accepted a friendly arm-wrestling challenge by a veteran identified as John O’Connell last Saturday. The two men were inside the entertainer’s suite at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln when the competition turned gruesome.

“Go!” a small child says in footage obtained by TMZ on Thursday. It took less than one minute for “Larry” to go “over the top” and snap the veteran’s arm.

The veteran seemed to take the incident in stride by sharing an image of his metal-plated arm online after surgery.

“I’m retiring from arm wrestling after this. Warning: Don’t watch if yer squeamish,” the comedian tweeted Thursday.

Warning: Disturbing content.
