(Newser) – Here's another reason to love beer: Apparently, it makes a great projectile weapon. Steven Larson found that out earlier this week when he allegedly tried to rob a convenience store in Florida. Security footage shows a man threatening a cashier with a knife, the New York Daily News reports. But as he reaches across the counter to grab the money, another clerk, one Dilip Patel, comes racing around the counter brandishing a 4-pack of Natural Light, and begins hurling the cans at the robber.

"I scared him and he ran away," Patel said afterward. Police later arrested Larson at home and charged him with armed robbery.
