Bandits chased off by beer can

It was beer can versus shotgun -- and the beer won. Police in central Pennsylvania say a 72-year-old pizza shop employee managed to chase away two would-be bandits at Six Packs on Vine.

Lancaster police Lt. Todd Umstead says the men entered the pizza place at closing time and one had a shotgun. Umstead says the employee threw a 12-ounce can of beer at man with the gun and both robbers took off.

The pizza shop employee doesn't know if he hit the robber, but the beer can made them hit the road.
