Butte bartender thwarts would-be robber – Montana Standard

At about 8:30 Sunday night, an unarmed man wearing a blue shirt tried to rob the Met Tavern at 1375 Harrison Ave. The lone person at the bar was a female bartender, who when told to hand over the money replied “No” and pointed a gun at the would-be robber, who unsuccessfully tried to cover his face with his shirt. He ran out of the drinking establishment and headed south. The case is under investigation and video is currently being reviewed.
