A Florida man’s plans to rob a Jacksonville convenience store went horribly wrong when he found himself front-stage, center of The Cashier Strikes Back.
Jacob Jeremy Mercer, 32, was arrested in the attempted armed robbery of Jacksonville Beach’s 8 til Late store. The mask-wearing thief entered the store with a pistol and demanded cash.
With no light saber around, a store clerk picked up the next best thing – a bottle of salad dressing – and hurled it at the Vader wannabe, who turned and fled. A man identified only as Ricardo told First Coast News he saw the thief leaving the store with a bloody face from where the bottle struck him. (H/T – TXNick)
Mr. Incredible, Darth Vader… I’m old enough to remember when thugs robbed banks while wearing presidential masks. What, did none of you see Point Break?
