Caught on Camera: Clerk fights off gunman with cup of coffee (VIDEO)

A gas station clerk fought off a gunman with a freshly brewed, piping hot cup of coffee at a Marathon station in Muncie, Indiana.

Just after 6 a.m. Sunday, the clerk told police he went to the counter to fill up a cup of coffee.  When the clerk turned around he saw a masked man pointing a gun at him.

Surveillance cameras from inside the store show the suspect making it only a few steps into the store.  He quickly brings his gun up and within seconds you can see the cup of coffee flying at him. The clerk had good aim; the cup hits the gunman directly in the face.
