A clerk at the 7-Eleven store on Polk at Kiest proved he was more beans than broth during an attempted robbery Tuesday night.

The would-be robber tried to stab the clerk with a screwdriver, and the clerk wound up roping him. When police arrived, they had to cut the stickup man loose because he was tied so tightly, WFAA reports.

The clerk told police he is a cowboy from West Texas.
