Deputy Brings Down Armed Suspect With a Can of Baked Beans
The Bay County Sheriff's Office in Florida made the unusual arrest Thursday.
Deputies from a Florida sheriff's office took down a suspect accused of armed robbery with the help of a can of beans.
Specifically, Bush’s Extra Brown Sugar Baked Beans.
Deputies responded Thursday to a Rainbow Store on a report of an armed and dangerous man threatening employees inside, according to the Bay County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies say they arrived along with Sheriff Tommy Ford, who spoke to employees outside and learned a suspect armed with a hammer had threatened to kill people in the store.
As Ford and other law enforcement closed in, the man approached the front door from the inside and began swinging the hammer at the door before retreating back into the store, police said in a statement on Facebook.
When they entered the store, the sheriff said the man lunged at them with the hammer.
That's when Maj. Jimmy Stanford whacked the suspect with the beans and helped subdue him before the assailant was taken into custody.
The suspect was taken to a hospital, where he allegedly kept up the struggle, attempting to take a gun from a deputy who was watching him in the emergency room, law enforcement officials said.
Stanford has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer, assault, and resisting arrest with violence.
