Never Bring a Bottle of Salad Dressing to a Gun Fight

The would-be robber used a bottle of salad dressing as an improvised weapon. The storekeeper responded by pulling out a gun:

DeLand police said a teenager threatened to shoot a store owner Friday when he robbed a convenience store, but he didn't show a gun.

More than a hour later, the 16-year-old went to another business — and that time there was a gun. But it was in the hand of the store owner, who pulled his weapon after the DeLand High School student grabbed a bottle of salad dressing off the shelf and threatened him with it.[...]

Police said the teen acted boldly when he approached the counter with the bottle of salad dressing over his head. But when the owner pointed his gun at him, the teen said: "OK, I'll get out." As he walked out the door, a responding police officer apprehended and arrested him.
