"I put him in a rear choke then I took him down to the floor as fast as I could," Gaspard told Inside Edition.

Gaspard had left a wrestling show in the area Saturday night before stopping at the gas station to grab something to drink. Gaspard says a man then approached him and pointed a gun at him.

The wrestler grabbed the gun and body-slammed the alleged thief to the ground. He pinned him down until police arrived.

On a 911 call, the store clerk is heard saying, “My customer came to this store and some guy came and he pointed a gun at this guy and he's a big guy!”

It turns out the suspect's weapon was a BB gun. He has been charged with robbery with a weapon.
