A man wielding bottles of Jack Daniels whiskey and vodka was captured on a liquor store surveillance camera tossing the full bottles at a clerk, who chased after the man and whacked at him with a garden spade.
The video is especially graphic, showing a clear view of a young man, wearing a black cap and California-themed T-shirt, yelling at the clerk, grabbing cigarettes from the overhead counter, walking around with a case of Bud and appearing to threaten the clerk with the booze.
The video was recorded June 16 at Tip Top Liquor in the 400 block of Bascom Avenue in San Jose.
Santa Clara County Sheriff's Sgt. Kurt Stenderup released the video Thursday, noting he had edited out the end, which showed the attacker pummeling the clerk, before being pulled off by a customer who broke up the fight. The suspect sped off in a white car, and the clerk suffered minor injuries.

The violence began, according to the video and clerk, when the man entered the store and picked up a case of beer, approaching the counter as though he were going to pay for it. He then asked the clerk how much a bottle of liquor was from behind the counter.
When the clerk went to check the price, the man went behind the counter and started grabbing bottles of liquor and cigarettes, as seen on the video.
The clerk confronted the man, who became angry, and can be seen in the video holding the liquor bottles over his head as if about to hit the clerk.

Never bring a bottle to a spade fight.
Clear case of alcohol abuse...
Kudos for calling a spade a spade...
Isn't that a "racist" term ?
Old #7 could have probably held his own if that no account Russian wannabe hadn’t jumped in. The spade would have been taken out with one shot! :-)
That wasn’t a spade. It was a rake.
Most spade fights involve guns or knives.....
It’s always good to have Sam Spade on your side.
