A bread truck driver used his legally carried firearm to take out a man trying to rob a Georgia Hardees fast food restaurant, according to reports.
Delivery truck driver Joseph Chilton put an quick end to a robbery at a Clayton County, Georgia, Hardees on Saturday, according to WSB TV.
Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill said Chilton was delivering bread to the restaurant on Saturday when Damario Kentrell Parrish suddenly jumped over the counter waving a gun and demanding money.
Restaurant employee Mary Ann Reynolds said, “This young man [had] been here twice. The first, he hurt my employees. The second time, he jumped over and put the gun physically to me. I just did what he asked me to do.”
But after Chilton arrived with his delivery, he realized that a robbery was in progress and he ran back to his truck and retrieved his legally carried firearm.
Chilton apparently did not hesitate.
“The bread man put his gun up. The robber put his gun up and the bread man shot at him four times,” store manager Keysa Roberts said. “His car was here, but he was able to stumble off into the woods.”
Parrish stumbled his way to a local home where he tried to hide.
Police tracked Parrish down and was able to get the occupants of the home out before going in and taking Parrish into custody.
Sheriff Hill said he was “impressed with Chilton” for “defending those who could not defend themselves,” and then he made the bread man an honorary deputy and inducted him into The Sheriff’s Posse Hall of Fame.
Another story ends when a good guy with a gun intervenes to put an end to crime.
