First he left a telling trail of $100 bills as he tried to stuff the money in his pockets and, when this bank robber reached his getaway car, he found the keys had been locked inside.
It didn't get any better Wednesday for the masked man who entered the Union Bank & Trust north of Richmond.
Police said the suspect, 61-year-old Edward Butler Blaine, fled on foot after beating on the car window with a piece of wood. Bystanders then began to chase him, police said.
When the bystanders caught him, Blaine tried to shoot them, but instead shot himself in the leg, Caroline County Sheriff Homer Johnson said. One of the men also shot him as they continued to struggle.
Blaine was charged with eight felonies, including robbery and two counts of attempted murder, Johnson said. He was hospitalized in Richmond for one night and was being held in jail Friday, authorities said.
All the money was recovered, Caroline County Sheriff's Capt. Scott Moser said.

Hahaha....that's that SR15M4 or something guy right? Whenever I read one of his posts I wanted to beat my head on the keyboard. I remember the thread in Art of the rifle where he was trying to justify the cost of his KAS.
