A would-be robber in DeSoto, Texas learned the hard way “Don’t Mess With Texas.”
Last Thursday morning, at 2:30 am, Antione Cooper, 26, robbed numerous people at a Waffle House in a suburb of Dallas, armed with an AK-47. When he walked out of the restaurant and went into the parking lot he didn’t bank on anyone following him, let alone a customer with a concealed carry license.
The man, who has not been identified, was worried about the safety of his wife who was on her way to meet him at the Waffle House. That’s why he followed Cooper outside. When Cooper saw the man following him, he pointed the AK-47 at him. That’s when the man acted.
The patron fired at Cooper numerous times. Cooper is now on life support in the hospital. He was identified after police circulated pictures of his tattoos to figure out his identity.
The investigation is ongoing. As of yet, the heroic customer has not been arrested or charged. Hopefully, it will remain that way.
A big h/t to my friend Sam Malone whose Facebook post brought this story to my attention.
