A man wielding an ax apologized after the owner of a business he was trying to rob got out a handgun, the Lancaster County Sheriffs Office said.
Early Wednesday morning, deputies were called to Rustys Grill on Pineview Drive because of an attempted armed robbery.

When the business owner produced a handgun and challenged the man, he apologized, said he was on drugs and fled the scene, according to investigators.

And the business owner didn’t even have to fire warning shots into the robber’s knees. Piers Morgan be hexed.
