Excerpt 10 of 11 continued. I put my dog food bag down, walked outside and walked over to the male and two woman. While he was talking to them and bragging about what he just did, I reached over, grabbed the two 12-packs and walked them back towards the store. The man shouted at me and said, “Hey a–hole, bring back my beer.” I told him it wasn’t his because he didn’t pay for it. He shouted at me again and said, “Hey a–hole bring my beer back now, or I’m gonna RIP your head off and s-it down your neck.” It sounded like those were fighting words to me. He started advancing towards me and swung at me. I ducked under and placed him in a carotid (sleeper hold) restraint and rendered him unconscious. I dragged him into the business, turned him over and placed my knee behind his neck. I instructed the clerk to call the Sheriff and tell them I was holding someone in custody for theft.
