Cooked and Basted! Timothy Armstead Throttles Dirtbag Bank Robber

My new superhero. Le Sigh!

As reported internationally, a would-be bank robber received a rather unpleasant surprise as he tried to make off with some stolen cash. Article everywhere but here's a link to the IHT report, Former US Marine waiting in bank nabe fire-extinguisher-wielding robbery suspect.

When the man then tried to walk out with the money, Armstead, 27, knocked him to the ground. He held the man down — lecturing him — until authorities arrived.

"I just told him it was a very stupid decision and now you get to spend 20 years of your life just for taking some money," Armstead told WSB-TV.

The man was taken to jail on suspicion of armed robbery.
