An attempted robbery at a Marina Del Rey pot dispensary turned into a brawl on Sunday evening.
A disgruntled ex-employee apparently got into a confrontation with a current employee around 6 p.m. as he tried to get paid for past work at the Venezia Discount Collective on 3018 Washington Boulevard.
Three of the ex-employee's friends then allegedly went inside the store and started to steal merchandise, authorities said. That sparked a fight in which the store owner, a man named Jackie who apparently has a background in martial arts, took on the ex-employee and his friends.
One suspect was knocked unconscious after a blow to the head.
A video showed Jackie exiting the store with his shirt torn.
Video also showed pot scattered all over the ground outside the shop.
One suspect was in custody on Sunday night.
