    Thumbs up Soldier stops bank robbery suspect

    Well I wasn't sure if this should go here, but the ending made me smile

    Soldier stops bank robbery suspect


    SARASOTA - A U.S. Army soldier visiting family in the Bay Area is being called a hero. Staff Sgt. Eddie Peoples foiled a bank robbery in Sarasota.

    At around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Peoples and his two children stopped at the Bank of America on Bee Ridge and Beneva Roads. Suddenly, Sgt. Peoples realized someone was holding up the bank.

    "He waves the gun at one of my children. So after he walked out of the bank, I followed him out here," said Peoples, speaking with FOX 13 in the parking lot of the bank after the entire ordeal.

    Heres my favorite part:

    "Every time I get deployed, I always tell my children I'm going to fight the bad men. When I walked back in the bank, my oldest boy said 'did you get the bad men?' and I said 'yep, I got the bad men' and everyone applauded," Peoples said

    I love this part!

    "I've been through five deployments. I've fought the Muqtada militia, everybody you can think of, so weapons getting pointed at me, it doesn't really bother me anymore," he said.

    Sgt Peoples is on GMA right now. (Those of you on the west coast, I highly recommend tuning in at 8:13 AM to watch how Sgt Peoples' took the robber down, if you get a chance.)

    Nice looking man with two gorgeous children! Soo cute!
