Wanna be thugs really better think twice when they go in to places to rob someone – especially if the person you cut off in line looks a heck of a lot bigger, stronger and tougher than you are:
“I grew up wrestling, from elementary to high school, and went straight into the Marine Corps, with all the basic combat training that they put you through,” Gaskey told KDAF-TV. “The reaction was instinctive, and everything I did, I like to say it was just muscle memory.”
The would-be thief, Dylan Bearden, surrendered without incident when police arrived, and was charged with aggravated robbery.
Plenty of people have called Gaskey a hero, but he disputes the label.
“I feel like someone who had the ability to do something and did it,” Gaskey told KDAF. “I would like to think that there are many people out there who would have done the same thing if put in that situation.”
I don’t think too many folks are brave enough to challenge a gunman robbing a store. This guy showed some serious moxie by taking this guy down wrestling style. Thanks for your service, and thanks for keeping this bad guy from doing worse!
