    Police were still searching for the suspect whom, they say, made his escape in a white Ford Explorer.
    Should be easy to spot, just look for a criminal with a face full of blisters and a large brown stain on the front of his shirt. Good quick thinking by the employee.

    The next news item we see will be when the clerk is fired for resisting the robbery attempt.

    I hope they find "Java man."

    Well this is connecticut, they may try to outlaw coffee as a dangerous weapon. They'll go door to door to see who has it and who doesn't.

    I do not see this ending well for the Employee!
    Too many ways to be sued on this one for Dunkin Donuts to let her remain on the payroll.
    And since this is Connecticut she could be charged with self defense with a dangerous weapon.

    But, as has been said, it's better to be unemployed than worm food.

    What kind of coffee was it? Dark Roast has the most stopping power but DeCaf is not underpowered using the new blends available these days.

    When the clerk refused, the man declared he was robbing the store and attempted to crawl through the drive-thru window. On surveillance video captured by the store, the clerk can be seen trying to shut the window and, when that fails, throwing coffee at the man.

    This crook couldn't even be bothered to walk through the door - he had to try and rob the place through the drive-thru. What kind of moron tries to climb through a drive-thru window?

    Some people are just too stupid to be walking among the rest of us.

    As long as you have an EPA-approved, spill-proof, single-serving-only cup with an external safety.

    Well Dunkin' Donuts will find the guy as soon as he get his lawyer to sue for $2 million just like the Micky Dees in Texas where the women spilled the coffee and burned herself!! Life is a Female Doggie and then you die!
