Liquid courage

In any other situation, I might think that this was a waste of beer:
Sheriff's officials say the would-be robber brandished a gun at the clerk Saturday night at Mr. Fuel and demanded money, then pointed the weapon at several store customers. One customer walked to the rear of the store, got two beer bottles and struck the suspect in the back of the head.

The customer struggled with the gunman, who in turn shot him several times. The customer didn't suffer life-threatening injuries.
The article doesn't mention whether or not the guy was charged for the beers, but I would hope not.
