Beer is the drink of champions, or well, heroes. A case of beer was at the center of a recent robbery attempt in Oklahoma City, and it saved lives.

According to KOCO-TV, police say a woman entered the store with a gun and demanded that the 70 year old clerk Lein Nguyen hand over the cash. When the suspect began hitting her with the gun, our clerk started grabbing cases of beer and throwing them at the would-be robber.

The robber fled the scene with what I’m sure could only be bruises. Unfortunately they haven’t been able to find the suspect just yet, but the clerk appears to be well.
