RICHLAND COUNTY, SC – A South Carolina convenience store clerk got into a fist fight with a man who was trying to steal beer and it was all caught on camera.

Surveillance video shows a man apparently stealing two cases of beer from the gas station on October 30th. In the video you can see the store employee go running after the man and try to take the beer back. That’s when the suspect jumped on the clerk’s back and grabbed him around the neck.

The store clerk manages to get in some blows, hitting the man in the stomach. They struggle and the beer is spilled.

At one point, they both raise their fists ready to attack.

A second suspect can also be seen in the video, but authorities say they both got away.
