Man robs bank, gets naked, throws money
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.
