Salt Lake City, UT – A robbery attempt went south after a store clerk with a crowbar tested the resolve of a perpetrator who claimed to have a gun. The wannabe robber was apprehended a short time later after a police chase by car and foot.

According to police, Michael Gagon walked into a Fresh Market gas station convenience store and demanded money after saying he had a gun in his belt. Police said, in response, the female clerk produced a crowbar and told Gagon, “You’d better be a good shot.”

With his planned robbery now presumably streaming down his leg in both liquid and… well… semi-liquid form, the suspect fled the scene in a vehicle he had reportedly carjacked from a Papa John’s delivery guy. With no other pressing business to attend to, the clerk made a note of Gagon’s vehicle and called police.

News reports said Gagon ended up on a dead end street with police in pursuit.  Police said that he abandoned the vehicle and went into a residential area on foot. Gagon is reported to have run through backyards and, in one case, through a home with the residents inside watching him go by. Run Michael! Run!

Police would eventually tackle Gagon in a backyard and now faces charges of robbery, fleeing and trespassing.

Salt Lake Police cautioned that the suspect could have grabbed the crowbar out of the store clerk’s hand and used it as a weapon. In this case, however, it sounds like that clerk-lady would have used this robber’s teeth – still in the jawbone – as a weapon on him first.
