Men Attempt To Rob A McDonald’s - Didn’t Realize Special Forces Soldiers Were There

Two robbers who tried to take down a McDonald's Restaurant in France got a good bit more than they bargained for.

According to media reports, the two would-be robbers fired a shotgun in the air at the restaurant in Besancon, making threats of violence and telling the staff to open a cash register with over $2,000 in it.

However, these robbers should have looked the place over a bit more carefully before their attempted heist. That’s because it turns out that among the several dozen customers eating at the establishment were 11 off-duty officers of France’s paramilitary special forces who were there to see justice served.

“During the hold-up, the gendarmes didn’t do anything,” prosecutor for the area Edwige Roux-Morizot explained in an interview. “It was out of the question to use their weapons, as this would have created difficulties and could have placed many people’s lives in danger.”

That said, when one of the suspects tripped and fell on the way out of the restaurant, the officers moved in. They captured the fallen man, but the other man refused to drop his weapon, so police shot him in the stomach when he was trying to flee.
