It wasn’t just warm hash browns, hot waffles, and scrambled eggs that were being served up at a Waffle House in Conway, South Carolina on December 22nd of 2022. In addition to all those foodstuffs, one of the Waffle House employees had to serve up some hot lead to a few armed criminals attempting to rob the place.
Apparently, the employee was attacked by two armed robbers who ran into the establishment, jumped over the counter, and began attacking while attempting to rob the place. It was then that one of the attempted robbers was allegedly punching the employee in the head and pushing him into nearby objects. The other stood guard with a drawn firearm.
