Handgun Trumps Axe

In Lancaster, SC:

Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Lancaster man Tuesday after he walked into a restaurant and demanded money while wielding an axe, police say.

David Leroy Deese, 45, of 2562 Cane Mill Road in Lancaster, is charged with armed robbery and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, according to a Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office news release.

Deese walked into Rusty’s Grill at 2423 Pineview Drive around 5:34 a.m. with axe in hand. That’s when the business owner took out a handgun and challenged Deese, the release states.

Deese soon began apologizing, saying that he was “on drugs,” police say. He then fled the scene.

Dude doesn't know how lucky he is to be alive at this point, I think. Restaurant owner could have blown him away and no one would have said a thing except nice grouping.
