EVANSVILLE, Ind. - Evansville police say a 50-year-old Indiana man has been arrested after he attempted to rob a gas station customer.
Police say James Worthington pulled up to a gas station on a bike early Tuesday morning. They say he approached James Shelton as he was pumping gas and demanded money.
Shelton says Worthington pointed a gun at him when he initially denied he had money. Then Shelton told Worthington he had $20 in his truck.
Shelton instead grabbed a club and fought off the would-be robber.
Police say they located Worthington and chased him down after he attempted to flee. Officers say they saw him toss a gun as he ran and it turned out to be a BB gun.
Worthington is charged with attempted robbery, pointing a handgun and resisting law enforcement.
The Vanderburgh County Jail didn't know if Worthington had an attorney.
