ASTONISHING footage shows a cool customer lighting a cigarette as an armed robber waves a loaded gun in his face.
Tony Tovar was relaxing at his local bar in St. Louis, Missouri, on Tuesday when a gunman burst into the room demanding cash.
But while other people in the pub took cover with their hands above their heads, Tony nonchalantly picked up his phone and refused to move.
And when the robber pointed a “heavily-modified pistol” at him and tried to grab his device, the drinker tightened his grip before lighting a cigarette.
Tony told local news outlet KSDK: “I said not another punk trying to pull a punk move.
“I’m so tired of people in South City thinking they can control people because they wanna muscle their way in with firearms or attitudes or some sort of aggression.”
The rest of the CCTV footage shows the gunman robbing other patrons of their phones and money while checking the cash register.
Meanwhile, Tony continues to sit on his bar stool with his phone and cigarettes in front of him.
He said: “I wasn’t really concerned. I just had a really good feeling he wasn’t out to harm anybody, he just wanted drug money.”
