Would-be robber pushes firefighter, lives to regret it

(WVUE) -

A 19-year-old man who tried to rob a gas station in Texas last month made a big mistake when he pushed an off-duty firefighter in order to get to the cashier.

Surveillance video of the incident was released Tuesday by the Midlothian Police Department. (Mobile users watch here: http://bit.ly/1Mv7UZ1)

The video shows Dylan Bearden approach the counter, push a man aside and pull out a knife before demanding money.

The man, firefighter and former Marine Daniel Gaskey, isn’t having it, and takes Bearden down with no problem, holding him until police arrive.

Bearden faces aggravated robbery charges.

No one was injured in the incident.
