Perez pulled out a knife and hit the male clerk on the left thumb, according to police. The cut was minor.He later attacked a police K-9 unit with the beer bottle. (He hit the dog several times - no word on the doggie's condition.) The goof-ball was taken to the hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
The clerk took out a gun and shot the suspect in the right arm.
Perez then went to a cooler, stole a beer and exited the store, police said.
Self-defense works, and it is a human right.
