    Pizza man thwarts robbery with beer can

    LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - It was beer can versus shotgun -- and the beer won.

    Police in central Pennsylvania say a 72-year-old pizza shop employee managed to chase away two would-be bandits at Six Packs on Vine.

    Lancaster police Lt. Todd Umstead says the men entered the pizza place at closing time and one had a shotgun.

    Umstead says the employee threw a 12-ounce can of beer at man with the gun and both robbers took off.

    The pizza shop employee doesn't know if he hit the robber, but the beer can made them hit the road.


    Instead of gun... maybe I'll just start carrying a 6 pack!

    I wonder if a 12oz soda can would work too. I don't drink beer.

    Must have messed up the moron's OODA loop, throwing a beer at him. Glad it worked! But I have to say, the old man is lucky the guy didn't shoot the beer and then him!

    Maybe the crook knew his limitations, and was hoping for no resistance.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    That's going to be tough to conceal plus you'll need another six pack for reloads. Talk about a beer gut.

    He could "shotgun" the first six to get quicker reloads...

    Guys, keep this one quiet... next thing you know, Sarah Brady will be pushing to outlaw 12- and 24-packs as "assault packs"...
