IHOP Waiter Takes Down Robber, Gets Hit In Face With Crowbar [WATCH]

While it might not make sense to the rest of us, some people just have it in them to try and be a hero, even if it puts them in danger. Elijah Arnold of San Antonio, TX has that type of hero mentality, and put it on display as he took down an alleged robber at a local IHOP.

Arnold was a waiter at a local IHOP when he saw the man getting into the register to take money. The quick thinking employee sprinted toward the thief, tackled him and didn’t let him get away, even after getting hit in the face with a crowbar, according to KENS 5 News.

Surveillance footage showed the whole thing going down, as you can see everything short of the crowbar to Arnold’s face.

It might have been a little unnecessary to put his life in danger for a few dollars, especially since they weren’t coming out of his pocket, but he felt he owed it to IHOP, who reportedly gave him a second chance at life after he was homeless.

Arnold said he was a “3rd-degree black belt in mixed martial arts,” but none of that training seemed to be on display during the altercation. He did stop the alleged robber, but it just would have been cool to see a choke hold or knock out blow, for the sake of combat sports.

Family Loses $32,000 In Cash At An Applebee’s Restaurant, Then A Miracle Happens

What would you do if you randomly found $32,000 in cash?

One honest waiter at a Fresno, California-area Applebee’s who found himself in just that situation decided to return the money.

The $32,000 in cash had been lost by Erika Gonzalez and her mother, Berta, while they were running errands on Wednesday, reports the Fresno Bee.

Erika Gonzalez told the outlet that her and mother’s hearts “dropped” when they realized the money they intended to deposit at a bank had been left somewhere.

The money came from her father’s San Jose restaurant and from rental houses the family owns. Told that there were no safe-deposit boxes for the cash, the mother and daughter decided to run errands before heading to the bank.

On Thursday morning, after being unable to find out where the cash had been left behind, they called police. Turning what might have been a nightmare into a “good Christmas story,” as a police spokesman described it, the Gonzalez family was then told that an Applebee’s server had notified his boss that he had found a bag full of $100 bills. The money was returned to the family after they were interviewed.

The server’s identity remains a mystery since he told police he did not want any publicity.“He just wanted to do the right thing,” Carrie Hellyer, the local director for Applebee’s, told the Fresno Bee. “He’s a remarkable young man.”
