    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.

    "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.
