Authorities in Georgia hunted for a man who robbed a Waffle House using a pitchfork.

Police in Norcross, Ga. say Jeffrey Wooten stormed into the business wearing a blue ski mask, menacing employees with the tool as he ordered them into a back room. According to Norcross Police Chief Warren Summers, Wooten failed at opening the cash register, so he picked it up and fled.

It would've been a smooth getaway, had he not tripped, fallen and dropped the pitchfork.

A brave Waffle House worker picked it up, chasing Wooten into a Rite-Aid where the two squared off in a battle for the ages. The worker managed to strike Wooten with the pitchfork, as well as damage some of his beloved Ford F-250's windows.

Wooten abandoned his vehicle as police arrived. Police asked for information about his whereabouts to be sent to Detective Craig Dallape at 770-448-2111.
