    im not even understanding how you could break a clavicle with a head lock.

    I think the moral here is not to try to mug 70 year old ex-military dudes.

    I was thinking the same. The only think I can come up with is either the clavicle somehow severed the assailant's carotid artery or jugular vein, or severed/severely damaged the neck spinal cord area by jabbing into it.
