Two gunmen inadvertently got much more than they came for when they tried to hold up a McDonald's in Eastern France - as the place they attempted to rob was full of off-duty elite French police. Needless to say, it was not a happy meal.

Two armed gunmen stormed a McDonald's restaurant in the province of Besancon in Eastern France, hoping to get away with if not the score of a lifetime, then at least with some ready cash and perhaps a burger or two.

What they got instead was a hefty portion of justice, served to them by the 11 off-duty policemen of GIGN (Intervention Group of the National Gendarmerie), an elite police unit specializing in resolving hostage situations.

The officers calmly waited for the thieves to empty the till and attempt to make their getaway, which is when they identified themselves and demanded the gunmen surrender.

Still not realizing who they were dealing with, the gunmen tried to strongarm their way out. Both were quickly arrested and now face charges of armed robbery.
