BBQ IN THE NEWS: Old Timer's Robbed at Gunpoint
Old Timer's Pit Bar-B-Que & Fish on Clarksville Highway in North Nashville was the victim of an armed robbery on Saturday morning. A masked man entered the building and put a gun to an employee's head and told him to call his boss into the room. Owner Howard Owen sensed trouble and grabbed his pistol, but the surprise of seeing a masked marauder caused him to fall and hit his head. In the end, the robber left with the cash while Owen and his employee counted to sixty.
WTVF's website has surveillance camera footage and an interview.
