Police said clerks at a convenience store that was robbed twice in recent months threw money at a man in a case of a mistaken robbery.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

The clerks at Five Star Snacks and More thought they were being robbed last Thursday when they were confronted by a rambling man who had his hand in his pocket.

Police Capt. John Beckman said the clerks put money in a bag and threw it the man, who left it alone and walked out of the store.

Police said the man was drunk and the robbery suspicions were a mistake.

The man was arrested for public intoxication, disorderly conduct and interference.
