    Store owner thwarts robbery with beer can
    By Steven Elbow

    A Mazomanie store owner didn't want to hand over his cash to a would-be robber, so he held a beer can in a threatening manner and asked the man to leave.

    Koua Yang, owner of Mazo Mart on Commercial Street, was working behind the counter at about 1:45 p.m. Tuesday when the man, later identified as 43-year-old John L. Boe of Madison, walked up to the counter with a six-pack of beer, according to a criminal complaint.

    "Give me your ... money," Boe allegedly told him, flashing a box-cutter.

    "Are you serious?" Yang asked.

    "Yeah, I'm serious. Give me your ... money."

    Yang plucked a can from the six-pack and held it up, as if to throw it at Boe.

    "I'm not giving you any money," he declared. "You want to go?"

    The intruder began backing out of the store and Yang followed him as he got into a black car. Yang wrote down the license plate number and Boe was picked up a few minutes later heading east on U.S. 14.

    Boe was charged Tuesday with attempted armed robbery with the threat of force and was ordered held on $2,000 bail.

    Mr. Yang was lucky....but so was Boe....getting your skull cracked from a thrown beer can is something he wouldn't want people to find out about in a prison infirmary.

    Contact all of the holster makers! We need to see if they can make holsters for the new improvised weapons just introduced.

    BTW, Bud likes big guns, so he will probably be carring a 40 oz. can.

    I like big guns too - I'll go for the 40 oz MGD - that's in glass bottle - way more effective

    It would of course be fully chilled so - extra would be infliction of frostbite!!
