Man Stops Carjacking With Hot Coffee

BLUFFTON, S.C. (Oct. 20) - A would-be carjacker got quite a jolt when he picked the wrong car to try to steal, Jasper County deputies say. The suspect tapped the window of the car Wednesday morning with a gun and motioned the driver to get out, Chief Deputy Roy Hughes said.

The driver of the car had just bought a cup of hot coffee. So he slammed his door into the carjacker's legs, threw the coffee on him possibly burning the suspect's neck and face, and wrestled him to the ground, Hughes said.

A shot was fired during the scuffle, but no one was hurt. The driver managed to get the gun from the suspect and point it at him, Hughes said.

The suspect ran into the wood behind the store.
Deputies are looking for the would-be carjacker along with two people believed to be with him who drove off while the fight was going on.

Not necessarily smart, but definitely hardcore.

I'm glad the guy survived the encounter. I'll gladly surrender my car if a gun is pointed at me, though I'd be tempted to floor it.
