One robber got a big surprise when he decided to rob a Texas gas station.
Former active duty Marine Daniel Gaskey was casually standing at the counter of a Midlothian, Texas convenience store when a robber suddenly ran in and pushed him aside. The masked man quickly pulled a knife on the clerk and demanded he hand over all the cash in the register.
As soon as realized what was going on, he snapped into action by grabbed the robber from behind and disarmed him. Within seconds, Gaskey had the robber on the floor. It takes a lot of bravery to fight an armed man in the first place. Gaskey wasn’t afraid to restrain the suspect with only his body weight and arm strength.
In the surveillance video above, you can watch the entire ordeal play out and see just how quickly Gaskey took down the suspect. It’s a great example of why you should never underestimate the power of a truly ticked-off country boy.
