Man robs bank, gets naked, throws money

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

FORT LAUD­ERDALE, Fla. — No­body’s laugh­ing. Author­i­ties in Florida say they ar­rested a man who robbed a bank, stripped naked and ran down the street throw­ing stolen money — all be­cause he woke up Tues­day and wanted to be­come a co­me­dian.

In­stead, the FBI says 25-yearold Alexan­der Sper­ber is charged with bank rob­bery. A fed­eral com­plaint says the man told author­i­ties he parked his car at the bank, made a gun mo­tion with his hand and de­manded money from the teller, who gave him about US$4,700 in a bag. Of­fi­cials say a red dye pack ex­ploded, stain­ing his clothes and a cast on his left wrist.
