Huntsville police: Robber demands money from Starbucks; cashier gives him a coffee instead


http://blog.al.com/breaking/2013/01/huntsville_police_robber_deman.html


HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- Huntsville police arrested a man whom officers report attempted to rob the Starbucks Coffee on Airport Road on Sunday morning.

Police said Phillip Sawdey approached the cashier at the business and demanded "all the cash." The cashier told Sawdey she was unable to open the cash drawer and then offered him a coffee instead.

Sawdey took the coffee and left the store, the report shows, and officers found him walking in a nearby parking lot. Upon their investigation, they arrested Sawdey for robbery without incident.

1. If he didn't have any lucky at that Starbucks

He should have just walked a block down and tried another one.

4. He did have luck...

He got a free coffee. Do you know how much a Starbucks coffee is? Yeah, there is a reason that is an only once in a while for me.

If they guy hadn't taken the coffee could they have arrested him for robbery? Or, would they just have to go with attempted?

7. "Coffee? Really? Okay. A venti double cappuccino, dry, skinny, with whip cream. Oh, and sprinkles."

"And hurry. I think I hear sirens."
