Man tries robbing store with cattle prod
Accused robber thwarted when clerk pulls gun
A Florida man who police say tried robbing a convenience store with a cattle prod met his match when the clerk pulled a gun.
Lance Tomberlin, 26, went into the store outside Tallahassee last week and demanded money, shocking the clerk several times with a cattle prod, The Associated Press reported.
Tomberlin fled when the clerk pulled a handgun.
Deputies stopped Tomberlin's truck, but he escaped on foot.
Tomberlin was arrested Tuesday and charged with armed robbery and aggravated battery, according to the AP.
