The GBI saves Flores a few years in prison. Maximum now is 5 years, 8 months. Sentencing next month. But the conviction on assault "complicates" his potential lawsuit against the Good Samaritan, defense attorney Richard Esquivel says. https://t.co/CkAGsggxoH— Corin Hoggard (@corinhoggard) November 14, 2017
Ryan Flores was charged with attempted robbery with a knife and assault with a deadly weapon against the man who stopped his robbery. Flores walked into a Starbucks in July wearing a Transformers mask with a built-in voice changer. He pointed a replica gun, then a knife at the cashier and told her to give him all of his money.
That's when Cregg Jerri stepped in and crashed a chair over Flores' back.
In the end, both Flores and Jerri were injured.
Flores has threatened to sue Jerri for his injuries.
