    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    According to police, their investigation so far indicates Ede was hovering approximately 15 feet off the ground when a gust of wind caused him to lose control and crash to the ground.

    The police reported the incident to the FAA who plan to respond to the scene on Monday to investigate further.
