In Oregon, a car wash attendant chased off a would be robber with a power washer, however he ended up in jail due to an old warrant! So much for his good deed!
A gunman disguised in a skeleton mask strolled into Washman Carwash in Portland on the 13th of December. He confronted employee Chris Truax, demanded money and produced what looked like a handgun.
Unfortunately for the would be robber the weapon broke and the gunman stuck it in his waistband.
Truax pulled the power washer from a pail and aimed it at the robber like a rifle directing a high pressure stream of water toward the assailant.
Truax’s employers gave him two days off with pay but the police jailed him on a seven-year-old warrant accusing him of driving under the influence of intoxicants.
Well, hopefully he gets a little time off his jail sentence for preventing a robbery.
