Skip to comments.Waffle House Armed Robber Gets the Surprise of a Lifetime When Customer Decides to Fight Back
Posted on 07/30/2013 3:00:15 PM PDT by lowbridge
An Atlanta crook picked the wrong Waffle House to target early Monday morning. Thats because when the bandana and hoodie-wearing bandit walked into the restaurant and pointed a gun at patrons, one of them reached for his gun and fired back.
Police say the suspect entered the Waffle House in south Fulton County just before 2 am, brandishing a pistol and demanding money.
Nobody move and open the cash register, the suspect, 20-year-old Ashton Macafee, allegedly said according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC).
What he didnt know was that seated together at a booth were off-duty Atlanta police officer Jonathan Sutton and his friend, off-duty security guard Evans Chad Pollard.

Well, at least the hoodie wearing perp didn’t say “This is for Trayvon”
” Nobody move and open the cash register, the suspect, 20-year-old Ashton Macafee, allegedly said ..”
If nobody can move, how do you open the cash register?
Just shows, if you’re trained,.....you won’t waffle.....
Life imitates art... this sounds like the diner scene from “Pulp Fiction.”
If my honest citizens were carrying, maybe these bums would stay home and watch TV or try and get a job instead of sinking to the bottom of the cesspool like this less than worthless thug who risked everyone’s life to get $54.11 from a Waffle House.
Brave man...did the right thing.
Off-duty security guard: “I just did what I had to do.”
Bruce Willis: “That’s why you’re ‘that guy.’”
I’d bet he looks like Obama’s son.
“So far, there are no reports Pollard will face any charges for defending against the attack.”
Gawd...they should be commended. If the perp dies, a medal.
Atlanta is NOT Chicago!
The ones doing the shooting were black, so the AJC couldn’t find anyone to criticize. Had white skin pulled the trigger this would be a totally different story.
The AJC is a worthless excuse for a daily paper.
Come on Yolanda what’s Fonzie like?
... the suspect entered the Waffle House in south Fulton County...
Hoodie-wearing? Not surprised... that must have been in Sabrina Fulton County!
Now let’s not all rush to judgement. We need to know if the thug was carrying Skittles before we can reach any conclusions.
Would be even better if the black customer said “This one’s for George Zimmerman!”
You beat me to it.
I’m sure a white guy would have been branded trigger happy by the media.
With the accompanying parental interview “Ashton was a good boy, tryin’ to turn his life around”
I just wanna eat my waffle!!! \obama
