A Florida deputy stopped a hammer-wielding suspect with cans of baked beans.

Officers arrived at a Rainbow Food Store in Youngstown, Fla. on May 31 after police were called to confront a man who was allegedly carrying a gun.

They found the suspect in the store. He was actually carrying a hammer and began attacking the officers.

One of the officers grabbed a couple cans of beans and began throwing them at the man, who was distracted long enough for the other officers to rush in and subdue the man.
