The clerk tried to call the police, but Green reportedly told him not to. The report said employees at another business associated with the gas station called 911. Officials responding to the scene first responded to an unrelated call from a drunk driver in the area.

Court documents say footage from the store showed Greene acting erratically before removing his shirt, according to the South Bend Tribune. He was unarmed at the time of the attempted robbery.
