High-pressure water eliminates criminal threat at carwash

SHREVEPORT, La. — Michael Davis’ dash cam captured the incident of the carwash customer using high-pressure water to defend and protect himself.

SHREVEPORT, La. — According to an article posted on fox4kc.com, a man recently used high-pressure water to fight off would-be robbers at a carwash in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Michael Davis was washing his car, noted the article, at 2 a.m. last month when a man confronted him at gunpoint and demanded Davis’ keys and money.

“He said ‘give me your keys and your money,’ and I said ‘what’d you say?’ and I took the sprayer and just sprayed it right in his face,” Davis told KSLA.

According to the article, the dash cam in Davis’ car recorded this brave carwash customer as he hosed down the assailant. Then, continued the article, Davis turned and blasted another man who was trying to come up behind him.

“I heard his friend try to run and get my backside so I turned around and sprayed him and hit him and they took off running,” recalled Davis. “The whole situation to me was almost surreal.”
