Oklahoma City • The police officer who caught a Florida man suspected of being Utah's "Bucket List Bandit," a bank robber who claimed to be terminally ill during a cross-country crime spree, said Monday that the man seemed extremely nervous after running a stop sign near an eastern Oklahoma casino.
David Goode, the assistant police chief in the small town of Roland, said he quickly realized something was askew when he pulled over an SUV being driven by 54-year-old Michael Eugene Brewster. The license plate didn't match the vehicle, and the diver had an identification card but no driver's license.
"I went up to ask him more questions. He became more and more nervous," Goode told The Associated Press. "A couple more questions, and I asked him again if he had a weapon. He told me he had a loaded .38 in the backseat, and I took him out at gunpoint."
