Youngstown (WTFF) – A Florida man wielding a hammer was brought down by a veteran Bay County Sheriff’s deputy armed with canned goods.
A video of the confrontation was published by mypanhandle.com, showing Major Jimmy Stanford throwing two cans at the Florida Man’s head before arresting him.
25-year-old Justin Tyler Stanford reportedly walked into Rainbow Foods store in Youngstown holding a hammer, and threatened to shoot and kill customers.
He was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer and assault.
Prior to this incident, he crashed a vehicle, so he was taken to the emergency room. In the hospital he attempted to take a gun from a nearby deputy, so he was also charged with resisting arrest with violence.
Justin is from Fountain.
