Video shows Barberian's owner beating up mugger

Here's a tip: If you're going to mug a restaurant owner carrying a till's worth of cash, don't pick the dude who runs a place called "Barberian's." Steakhouse owner Arron Barberian was forced to lay a beatdown on a would-be mugger Monday morning, after a man approached him from behind and attempted to grab his cash.

In a pair of videos posted by the restaurant to YouTube, Barberian grabs him by the shirt and manages to kick and shove the man before swinging him into the pavement. The man eventually manages to flee. (The cash, which fell aside in the tussle, is seen being picked up by a bystander, who returned it.)

The restaurant posted the video to social media, keen to brag about Barberian's brawling capabilities. If nothing else, it serves as a warning to anyone else who wants to get some of those steakhouse dollars for themselves. The man is his own security system. (At least he's got the wrestling name already sorted.)
