BELTSVILLE, Md. (WUSA9) -- A 26-year-old CVS store manager who was fired Friday for violating a company policy against confronting robbers says he’s applied to the Prince George’s County Police Department to become an officer.
“It was fight or flight, and I choose fight,” said Afghanistan veteran Joe Morici as he described the Friday morning confrontation inside the Calverton CVS store he was managing.
Morici said two men leapt over the pharmacy counter, stole prescription drugs and headed for the door. Morici told his staff to call 911 and went to see if any employees had been hurt. That’s when he confronted the two robbers and ended up grappling with them near the store’s front door.
