Taco Bell Employee Fights Crime With Mop Handle

Remember that scene in the Eddie Murphy film Coming to America where he and Arsenio Hall take out an armed robber (a barely recognizable Samuel L. Jackson) with a mop handle? Well, the real-life scene on Sunday at a Taco Bell in Indiana probably wasn’t as cinematic, but it was cool nonetheless.

According to police, a man entered the Taco Bell in question late on Sunday night, but he wanted more than just a chalupa.

“Get in the register,” the robber, who didn’t draw a weapon, told the Taco Bell employee.

That’s when the Taco ninja showed off his mop-fu skills against the wannabe burglar, who fled in fright.
