An off-duty security guard eating a meal with an off-duty Atlanta Police officer shot an armed man attempting to rob a Union City Waffle House Monday morning.

Ashton MacAfee, 21, entered the restaurant shortly before 2 a.m. and pointed a silver pistol at Jonathan Sutton, an off-duty Atlanta PD officer. While MacAfee held the gun on Sutton, Chad Pollard drew his pistol and wounded MacAfee. The two men then placed the suspect in handcuffs.

No other patrons were injured, reports WXIA.

Good stuff. Stay safe.

Can you say stupid criminal? Robbing a Waffle House in the middle of the night is like robbing a cop bar or doughnut shop! You are more often than not going to find a cop eating there. Maybe the guy was suicidal?

This was the best line in the story: When police arrived, officers said they found MacAfee handcuffed and lying on the floor just inside the restaurant door, bleeding profusely.

I mean, you don't want your coffee and waffles to get cold. Sounds like the type of story my grandfather told me about when he was a sheriff in upper Michigan back in the 1930's & 40's.

Capt. Crunch @ 7/31/2013 10:12 AM

A waffle a day keeps the robber away.

Perfect example of how armed members of a community can stand up for themselves when faced with armed criminals.
