Clerk Punches out Armed Robber, Forces Him to Clean His Own Blood off the Floor While Waiting for the Police

Derek Mothershead of the We Buy Gold store in Hendersonville, North Carolina is both tough and tidy. When he saw that a robber was armed with only a pellet gun, Mothershead took him down with a single left cross:

“When I pulled it out of his waistband I started laughing,” said Mothershead. “I said, 'Man, you came in here with a fake gun?'"

Mothershead said he dragged the man over to a desk and held him down with one hand and called 911 with the other. [...]

“He kind of begged me, begged me to let him go,” Mothershead said. “I said, 'You came in and tried to rob us. You’re going to jail.'”

Then, to add magnificent insult to injury, the clerk decided that the robber should find something useful to do while waiting for the police. Specifically, clean his own blood off the floor:

While they waited for police and paramedics, Mothershead gave Hendi a roll of power towels, sprayed the floor with cleaner and told him to clean up his own blood.

There's a video of the whupping at the link.

@tinspoons -- I remember how Jeff Cooper once responded when told that violence begets violence:

I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure — and in some cases I have — that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy.
