An Idaho pharmacist who wrestled down an armed robber was  fired.

A pharmacist who fought off an armed robber in Coeur D’ Alene, Idaho was awarded a special award from the city. But his award from his employer was termination because he confronted and captured the robber.  

He chased the armed gunman who stole medications, and was able to tackle him. 

He confronted the man who informed him he had a gun and started reaching for his pocket.
But, the former college wrestler tackled him. As often happens, the robber accidentally dropped his gun, and the two fought for it.

The thug was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, robbery, and aggravated assault.
The pharmacist received a Citizen’s Appreciation Award from the City.

He was fired by corporate headquarters located out of town.

The pharmacist has found another job.
