A Florida store clerk turned the tables on a bad guy, and it was all caught on video (KTRK)

An armed robbery suspect might want to think twice before trying to pull off another heist. That's because the guy he tried to rob is a military veteran who wasn't going be a victim.

It happened this past Friday at a gas station in Brevard County, Florida. Store video shows the suspect approach the clerk and show a gun. Deputies say the suspect demanded money and handed the clerk a bag to put it in.

That's when the clerk, a veteran who did multiple tours of duty in Iraq, fought back and had the bad guy on the defensive.

The suspect ran out of the store and jumped into a getaway vehicle.

The suspect remains on the loose, but will probably think twice before trying that again!
