Police: Intoxicated man arrived by taxi to rob Florida bank

Posted: Updated:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say an intoxicated man arrived by taxi to rob a Tallahassee, Florida, bank.

Police say 47-year-old Stanley Geddie demanded $100,000 from a bank manager Wednesday afternoon at the Capital City Bank, claiming he had a .357 handgun and C4 plastic explosives.

Officers say when they first arrived at the bank the cab driver told them Geddie had not paid his $25.50 fare. Officers then found Geddie in the bank manager's office, appearing "very intoxicated and spaced out." They say Geddie wouldn't follow their commands, prompting them to Taser him. No gun or explosives were found.

A Tallahassee newspaper reports that Geddie was arrested and charged with robbery, petty theft and resisting an officer. He was also being held on two probation violations.

Jail records didn't list an attorney.
