Police believe Michael Whitington (45) conducted a bank robbery he apparently had planned a little poorly.
The robbery was for the 45-year-old part successful, but the flight was worse. Once out of the bank in Denver, Colorado he didn't jump into a waiting muscle car with the engine running. He jumped on a passing tram.
With a top speed of 30 km/h.
In other words the robber didn't come very far before the police stopped the tram and arrested the man. He is now charged with bank robbery.
However, it's not the failed escape Michael Whitington gets the most attention for, but the mug shot the police in Denver have released.
The picture shows a man who doesen't seem too nervous. However, given the maximum sentence of twelve years, there's reason to believe that 45-year-old stopped smiling pretty fast.
