A Florida bank robber decided to play Robin Hood and Lady Godiva by fleeing the scene of his hold-up, then taking off all his clothes and showering pedestrians with wads of cash.
Alexander Sperber told a teller at a Regions Bank branch in Fort Lauderdale that he had a gun, then pulled his hand out of his pocket and pointed it at her as if it were a weapon which was enough for her to hand over $4700 in cash. She even threw in a little something extra — a red dye packet designed to explode as soon as Sperber broke into the wad of bills.
The teller’s plan worked, but Sperber wasn’t deterred from his mission and stripped off every stitch of his dye-stained clothes. He ran down the street naked, throwing cash at everyone in sight. He was subdued on a street corner and covered with a tarp before questioning, in which he said he pulled the stunt to jump start his career as a comedian.
