This is something you have to see to believe. A bar in St. Louis was robbed yesterday. The robber came in with a gun demanding people get on the ground and pull out their wallets and cell phones. However, one regular customer refused.
According to KSDK:
"I said not another punk trying to pull a punk move," said Tony Tovar who refused to comply despite the pistol pointed in his side and face.
"I'm so tired of people in south city trying to muscle their way in with firearms or bad attitude or some kind of aggression," said Tovar. "I wasn't gonna comply."
Tovar even went so far as to light up a cigarette while looking down the unsteady barrel. People who were there said after that, the robber settled for the cash drawer and left.
No one was hurt.
And just about everyone but Tony thinks he's a big reason why.
"I wasn't really concerned," said Tovar thinking back on his brush with gun metal. "I just had a really good feeling he wasn't out to harm anybody he just wanted drug money."
Tovar said he wouldn't suggest his methods to anyone else in a similar situation. But he wouldn't change what he did either.
