Former WWE star Shad Gaspard, 35, body-slammed the would-be robber at a Valero gas station in Coral Springs, WPLG reported.
Surveillance video shows Gaspard walking into the gas station convenience store and being approached by a man in a light-colored shirt and dark pants. Police said the suspect, Jason Felix, 35, got angry after he ordered Gaspard to buy him a beer and he refused.
“He lifts up his shirt and reaches and grabs a gun,” Gaspard told WPLG. “So he puts the gun into his waist belt and he goes, ‘You need to get out of here, man, because I’m about to rob this place.’” Gaspard discovered that the weapon he had was just a BB gun.
Gaspard grabbed the gun and pinned Felix to the ground outside the store until police arrived. Watch the video:
