WESH - Look at this surveillance video from the back lot of the puff and stuff catering warehouse.
Police say Alonzo Heard attempted to rob Stephen Yakima.
Staring down the barrel of a loaded shotgun, Steve said he had to spring into action.
"I don't feel like I was fighting for my life, I Just wanted to do what was right. I'm not going to put up with it," said Stephen Yakima.
On the video, you can see Steve struggle with Heard. He says the gun even fired a shot.
Hearing the screams for help from the nearby loading dock, his coworker and former member of the U.S. Army, Rodney delivered the blows that turned this struggle into an arrest.
"I heard the screams for help. I came around the corner and seen them 'scruffling.' Only thing I wanted to do was get my boss man loose," said Rodney Billingsley.
Detectives say earlier in the evening, Heard actually pointed his weapon at a woman who allegedly owed him $2.
Police say they found marijuana and cocaine on Heard. Right now he is sitting behind bars.
