News – “Florida deputy hurls Bush bean cans to subdue suspect”

orlandosentinel.com – You might say the hammer-wielding suspect got Bush-whacked.

The Panama City News Herald reports a Bay County sheriff’s deputy threw two cans of beans and helped subdue a man threatening people with a hammer inside a grocery store.

“The man began swinging the hammer at the door before retreating back into the store,” according to a Sheriff’s Office press release. “The Sheriff and others entered the store and the man lunged at them, swinging the hammer at them. They were quickly able to subdue him and take him into custody.”

Maj. Jimmy Sanford says the cans of Bush’s extra brown sugar baked beans were an alternative to using deadly force.

Initial reports Thursday said the suspect had a gun. It turned out to be a hammer, but he allegedly attacked three law officers with it. A video obtained by the newspaper shows Sanford hurling the cans at the suspect, who was arrested.

Authorities say 25-year-old Justin Tyler Stanford is charged with assault with a deadly weapon on an officer and other offenses. Court records didn’t indicate Saturday if Stanford had a lawyer.
