Atlanta, GA: This thug picked the WRONG Waffle House,
A 20-year-old attempting to rob a Waffle House pointed his gun at the wrong people early Monday, police say.
A police officer and a security guard, both off-duty, helped thwart the would-be criminal.
Wearing a black bandanna over his face and a hoodie, Ashton Macafee walked into the south Fulton County diner in the 4300 block of Jonesboro Road shortly before 2 a.m. brandishing a handgun and demanding money, said Detective Gloria Hodgson with Union City police.
“Nobody move and open the cash register,” Macafee allegedly said.
After his demand, Macafee pointed a gun at a man seated at a booth, according to police. That man, off-duty Atlanta police Officer Jonathan Sutton, couldn’t reach for his service weapon.
But the man seated next to Sutton, an off-duty security guard, fired two shots, police said. The security guard, identified as Evans Chad Pollard, shot Macafee.
“I felt that not only my life, but everyone’s life was in danger, so I had to do what I had to do,” Pollard said Monday afternoon.
First of all, how off track has your life gotten when you’ve been reduced to robbing a Waffle House at 2 AM? It’s not like you’re going to have that big of a haul and there’s a better than average chance a cop will be there taking a break on the late shift.
In any case, the bad guy was shot twice and everyone else was okay. What else can you say other than thank goodness we have a 2nd Amendment?
