It happened a few weeks ago in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Husband and wife pPolice officers Nicole and Chase McKeown were on a "date" at Raising Cain's Chicken Fingers, when surveillance video showed a robber wearing a white mask and black hoodie walk in. He pointed at the cash register and showed the cashier a handgun tucked into his shorts.
Their dinner was very delicious, but from their booth they noticed the cashier hold up her hands. Just before jumping up with weapons drawn, the couple looked at each other. Chase said they barely spoke, but both knew what they needed to do. When the robber saw the pair coming, he dropped his gun and ran out of the restaurant. The newlyweds chased him for a block before they were able to detain him. "There wasn't any planning it," said Chase. "That's where training takes over."
