10 Years for grammatically challenged Bank Robber

'Give money, I gun' bank robber gets 10 years in prison


A grammatically challenged ex-con is looking at 10 years in prison for robbing a Fridley bank of less than $2,000.

Joe Nathan Michael, 48, of Fridley, was sentenced Tuesday in federal court after pleading guilty to holding up the TCF bank at Cub Foods on May 20, 2010.

According to the plea agreement:

Michael gave the teller a note that read "Give money, I gun," leaving her confused about what he wanted. He told her to give him all the money and not to push any buttons.

She handed over $1,991, recorded bait bills and a concealed electronic tracking device. Michael put the money in his jacket and fled on foot.

Police, provided with a description, saw Michael standing at a nearby bus stop and apprehended him.

Michael's criminal history includes convictions in Minneapolis for felony robbery and felony domestic assault and gross misdemeanors for domestic assault and assault
