Video shows liquor store worker attacking robber with bottle of vodka in Boston

BOSTON - A word of warning to criminals: when you're robbing a liquor store watch out for flying bottles.

In this case, a vodka bottle at a liquor store in Boston.

The surveillance video shows a guy walking in just past 8. He motions like he has a gun, and demands cash. You can see the guy at the register, stuffing cash into a bag – and the suspect grabs it.

But a co-worker stepped in and fought off the robber using a bottle of vodka. Both men forced the thief out the door.

Police caught up with the guy in a nearby neighborhood. He was cut up and bloody, and probably had one heck of a vodka headache.
