Interesting scenario.

One way, the guy saved the day.

Another way, the guy saved the place about 100 bucks and is now open to civil lawsuit etc....

Then, there is the school of thought that it takes people like this to take back our streets as responsible citizens.

Ay any rate, glad it turned out ok.

Explain to me how he did so, please.

Unless the criminal is going to claim false imprisonment in opposition to all the people who are going to testify he was commiting a felony. Added to that, the guy did more than "save the place a hundred bucks." He potentially saved the cashiers life (getting stuck with a screwdriver can certainly kill you) and apprehended a criminal in the process.

I'm not attacking you or your post but, far more good came out of this situation than bad, or even potential bad.

They should give that man a medal.

Well, let me just refer back to a thread a couple weeks ago where a situation was presented that a guy walked in on a bank robbery but was able to get out in time. Ok, everyone concluded that the banks money was insured and the best thing to do was be a good witness.

How is this scenario any different? You still have a crook, you still have a threat, you still have peoples lives at risk.

I am not saying I would or would not take action, so please do not attempt to start an attack here.

Depending on your state, a CHL holder can be tried in civil court even if he did the right thing and was not found guilty of any criminal offense. Would you want to be caught in in thousands in legal fees, lifestyle distrupment, etc for a drawer full of cash? I doubt it. Do you think KFC is going to give this guy free chicken for life, I doubt it.
