CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) – Police say a robber looking for someone to buy him a beer picked the wrong man to mess with.

Instead of getting his beer, he ended up getting body-slammed by a former WWE pro wrestler.

The Miami Herald reports (http://hrld.us/2gFTPCB) Shad Gaspard – who once portrayed a criminal as half of the tag team Cryme Tyme – was at the drink cooler at a convenience store Saturday when Jason Felix approached.

Felix brandished what appeared to be a semi-automatic handgun. Store surveillance video showed Gaspard making quick work of disarming Felix.

The 6 foot, 7 inch-tall former wrestler then “escorted” Felix out of the gas station and through him to ground and detained him until police got there.

Officers charged Felix with robbery.
