DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- A 73-year-old store clerk in Michigan staved off trouble at his store for the second time in recent years by pulling a gun.
Venture Corners clerk Fred Price tells the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell (http://bit.ly/QAHKGE ) that he pulled his weapon Monday on a man he thought had a gun. Authorities say an apparently drunken man went into the store in Livingston County's Deerfield Township and demanded beer.
Price says the man wouldn't leave the property, so he pulled a gun. The would-be customer at the store about 45 miles northwest of Detroit was later arrested.
In 2010, a man walked into the store demanding money. Price knocked what turned out to be a starter pistol out of the man's hand and shot at a getaway car.
