Mims, North Brevard County, Florida. An armed robbery doesn’t quite go to plan when the robber decides to pick a store with a war vet working in. It was just after 11pm on January 26 when the criminal strolled into the Sugar Creek Gas Station. Demanding the guy behind the counter fill a bag full of the cash, the robbery went as normal until the clerk seized his chance…
After spotting his opportunity to fight back (after realizing that the weapon was an airsoft), a fight ensued and there was only ever going to be one winner. The punk kid stood no chance against the veteran who’d done multiple tours of Iraq.
“Although I never encourage our citizens to actively engage criminals over money or personal possessions, I bet this criminal thinks twice before taking on a U.S. Veteran again,” Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey told the media.
