So a Robber Walks Into a Texas Waffle House With an AK-47...

How stupid can some guys be?


When an armed robber walked into a Texas Waffle House restaurant with an AK-47, he may have forgotten that he was in Texas, but one customer quickly reminded him that you don’t get away with that sort of thing in the Lone Star State.


The alleged robber, 26-year-old Antoine Devon Cooper of Dallas, entered the DeSoto Waffle House at about 2:30 a.m. on July 7, armed with an AK-47 rifle. Cooper robbed several customers at gunpoint, then walked out of the diner, but one customer followed him out of the restaurant in an attempt to stop his reign of terror.

The customer, armed with a handgun and a Texas Handgun License to Carry, said his wife was on her way to the Waffle House. Fearing she or other patrons would encounter Cooper and be harmed in the parking lot, he jumped into action, officials said.

The man called out to Cooper in the parking lot, who then turned and pointed his AK-47 at him, police said. That’s when the customer shot him several times, eliminating the threat.

DeSoto Police Department responded to the shooting and found Cooper lying in the parking lot with multiple gunshot wounds. to He was transported to a local hospital where he is on life support.

The armed Waffle House customer and heroic husband will not face any charges and once again, the only thing stopping a bad guy with a gun… well, you know the rest.
