Man robbing restaurant foiled by police officers on date

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — You can say a man trying to rob a chicken joint in Louisville, Kentucky picked the wrong “date” to pull off the heist. That’s because the date he tried to rob the place — was the day two police officers were at the eatery on a date night. Elizabethtown Police Officer Nicole McKeown and her hubby, Det. Chase McKeown, were dining off duty Saturday night when a masked man entered Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers. The Courier-Journal newspaper reports when the robber pulled a gun and demanded money, the couple rose from their table, drew their weapons and gave chase when the man dropped his gun and fled. They apprehended the suspect, Justin T. Carter, who now faces charges. It’s unclear whether they finished their date.
