A cattle prod is no match for a gun, apparently.

According to a news release from the Leon County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office, police said a Florida robbery suspect armed with a cattle prod shocked a store clerk several times before the clerk pulled a gun on the suspect., who then fled the store.

The suspect -- a 26-year-old man -- was eventually arrested, and has been charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated battery, according to the news release.
