As a pilot and even war hero. He came after the war ended in his book I read a book if you. You months ago that he they filmed that.

And in Southern California and it was really warm on the set don't look that way you swagger or bad for all college and it's slowly. But we tend I Ochoa capitation but this time you we both start talking like try to talk like gibberish door on a weekend. But my favorite actors little time in police in Little Rock of arrested a twelve year old boy. Yeah accused of firing a handgun at workers during an attempted robbery at a fast food restaurant. Police say no one was hurt when the boy opened fire Monday night at a Burger King in southwestern Little Rock according to a police report the employees told officers. They thought the boy was joking when he demanded cash. But they pulled out a handgun and opened fire. Police say the boy ran away but came back to the restaurant later that night to turn himself in. Twelve years old charges in juvenile with aggravated robbery we don't see in that young. Very often on our in a watch page. WPD and then turned himself in himself in later him but I figured out in other. Produce about this year a giant chunk of central Idaho with a dazzling night sky has become the nation's first international dark sky a reserve.

Dark I think that's an interesting idea like that a lot like the lot now back to the subject of armed robbers. Police believe this could be the guy. Who is rob what fidelity bank and and it would yesterday of which state credit union got a mug shot this guy on a Wednesday. And I'm sure somebody out there well I'm not sure but maybe somebody out there right now no person is the 31 year old Mack calls and junior. I mean. It would appear to me that he's he's 31 years old been around for awhile WP need seems to know is. And by the public interest anybody gives managers on this robbery division numbers 2684518. If you remember that. You see this guy knows him 91 wants a nice debacle GAAP similar remember that on crime stoppers number three please remember to 6712 and eleven but.

Because they don't just talking to with a blue police chief yesterday. And they're very careful about you know people's rights and so forth and not putting something out there that proves to be fall also their they're pretty sure this guy.
