Raising Pains

Meet Nicole and Chase McKeown of the Elizabethtown (KY) Police Department. Nicole and Chase were off-duty, dining at Raising Cane’s – a fabulous chicken restaurant, by the way – when the unluckiest guy on Earth walked in.

Saturday night, date night for two off-duty police officers in Kentucky ended when they foiled a robbery at a restaurant chain in Louisville.

The married couple, Chase McKeown and Nicole McKeown, are officers with the Elizabethtown Police Department. They were eating dinner at Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, their favorite fried chicken restaurant, around 10 p.m. when a masked man walked up to the counter, showed a gun and demanded money.

The man was identified as Justin Carter, 30. When Carter flashed the gun, the couple, who had been married for just six months, sprang into action. Video footage shows the McKeowns getting up from their table, drawing their weapons and chasing Carter.

Carter basically chickened out, rushing from the restaurant as the two officers gave chase. The couple held Carter at gunpoint a few blocks away from the restaurant until Louisville police arrived and arrested him.

Wow, that’s awesome. Oh, and not only does Raising Cane’s welcome police officers into their hallowed halls, they were also very appreciative of the McKeown’s actions.

  1. TX Nick – Kyle raves about Raising Cane’s, Slim Chickens, and Buc-ees. I did like how the little pansy ran out the store when the officers drew down on him. Puss.

  2. In Texas, any business owner can ban firearms in their store by posting a 30.06 and a 30.07 sign (they have to comply with state law as to sign size and location). Any store that has neither sign legally posted is considered 2nd Amendment friendly. None of the Cane’s Chicken franchises I have visited had these signs posted. Ditto with Whataburger franchises.

    Texas makes it easy to identify businesses that deserve our support.
