Army Officer Disarms Bank Robber! [News Footage]

SARASOTA, Fla. - Staff Sergeant Eddie Peoples was at the bank with his children, when a robber walked in waving a gun and demanding money on Tuesday. Peoples and his family quickly took cover until the suspect left. Peoples, a Sarasota native, says he was just doing the right thing and that his training in the Army has prepared him to handle anything. "This is an everyday thing for the U.S. Army. I've been deployed 4 times; three to Iraq, once to Kuwait...so I've had my share of getting shot at and everything, so it just doesn't bother me anymore. I just couldn't let him get away with this."
