Dustin Hoffmann Thwarts a Robbery!

12/12/2007 4:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A hold up at a New Jersey Dunkin' Donuts was quickly derailed when the crook got clocked in the head with a tin cup -- by Dustin Hoffmann!

Ok, not that Dustin Hoffman. This guy spells his name with two ns. And he's a quick-thinkin', goatee-sportin' cashier who simply wanted to "look good" on the security video. For the love of YouTube!

"What was going through my mind at that point was that the security tape is either going to show me run away and hide in the office or whack this guy in the head, so I just grabbed the cup and clocked that guy pretty hard," the twenty-something aspiring musician told The Bergen Record.

Meanwhile, we found the real Rain Man signing autographs and sending a shout out to the troops in Iraq last night at Ago.

Hey everyone, That youtube comment was a joke. The Record did the same thing they claim I did... do something for the wrong reason. I wasn't even going to make any vids for it but now everyones really T-in me off crackin on me for something that alot of other people wouldnt do, so now I feel obligated. A thief didn't punk me off and niether will America. So check out my vids on youtube bout this. Thanks to everyone who does support me and may the porcelain bewith you.

Gimme a break    

Holy Crap!!! I just bought a coffee from this guy on my way home from work last night. I had no idea. This place is a mile from my house. That place is always packed, I'm surprised that no one was in there when it happened. (I'm glad I picked last night to go & not Sunday night..LOL)
