Another story with a happy ending that you will not see on CNN:

------------------------------------------------

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A man tried to rob a bartender at Capitol Grill in Jackson, but customers took action.

The incident happened around 6:30 Tuesday evening. Witnesses say a man walked into the restaurant and started asking customers for money.

"He was walking out the door and the waitress had her cash drawer, and she was going to lock her cash drawer up and this guy came walking out the door and he snagged it, it was a crime of opportunity," one witness, who identified himself as Monk said.

The male suspect didn't get too far. In an effort to protect herself, the bartender pulled a knife on the man and other people inside came to assist.

"I saw a guy in a suit point a gun at someone and it just looked like they were protecting them self basically," Gabrien Maxwell, another witness explained.

Someone called 911 and within minutes officers were on scene.

"Good guys with guns, they ran out there and drew down on the dude and contained the situation and it was a done deal," Monk said.

Police arrested the man and a woman driver and found drug paraphernalia inside a Red Honda with Kentucky plates. Regulars at Capitol Grill are thankful the situation wasn't worse.

"The good guys won but the bad guys lost. Thank God it had a happy ending," said Monk.

Well, it is Jackson---half the customers were probably planning on robbing the place later, and got angry when someone they didn't know tried to move in.

Lol, probably not far off. That's more of a Delta thing though.

This is an independent place called "Capitol Grill" and not the chain Capital Grille? Because I wouldn't think there'd be a Capital Grille in Mississippi.
