Don't mess with Hamburger Mary's GM Jeff Edmondson

This statue isnt going anywhere.

In a scene straight out of The Terminator, Hamburger Mary's general manager Jeff Edmondson apparently ran a pickup truck down on foot in order to break up an alleged mascot robbery attempt on Sunday night. KSHB Channel 41 has the story of his heroics.

Edmondson apparently followed a couple who had mascot-napped the Mary statue out the front door, and here's what he told Channel 41 happened next:

"I just reached up and grabbed the tailgate and just launched myself up into it. And reached up and grabbed the back of their truck so they couldn't throw me out. I said if you don't stop and take this back, I’m going to kick in your back window and throw you out of here and take it back myself," said Edmondson.

They drove for a block before stopping. Edmonson then called the police, who were waiting at Hamburger Mary's for the truck to return to the scene of the hamburglary.

It sounds like he missed his true calling as a bodyguard. Somebody buy that guy a burger, and would-be thieves should think twice about taking even a few sugar packets from the Crossroads restaurant.
