    (WXYZ) -- An attempted bank robbery in Canton played out like a scene from a movie Monday when a man who claimed to have a bomb was stopped by a customer armed with a pistol.

    WATCH EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH THE HERO IN VIDEO PLAYER RIGHT

    The drama started just after the Comerica bank on Michigan Ave. opened around 9 a.m. Police say a 54-year-old man from Washtenaw County walked up to a teller and handed her a note claiming he had a bomb strapped to his body.

    The fast-thinking teller hit the silent alarm while filling a bag with $1 bills -- until the man demanded "bands of 50s and 100s." Another teller saw the situation unfolding and alerted Nabil Fawzi, 39, a long-time customer.

    Fawzi, who spent six years in the Lebanese army, took matters into his own hands.

    He tells WXYZ.com he pulled out a .9 mm handgun (for which he had a CCW permit), racked a bullet in the chamber, pointed it at the man and announced, "You are not robbing this bank!"

    The startled Washtenaw County man countered with, "but, I have a bomb" -- but Fawzi wasn't impressed. "I don't care. You are not robbing this bank!" was the reply from the other side of the gun. He then forced the would-be robber into chair and held him at gunpoint until police arrived.


    Police tell WXYZ.com there were no injuries, no issues with Fawzi's CCW permit, and no bomb found at the scene. The suspect is expected to be arraigned today.


    .9mm :mamoru: stupid media. :bowdown: to Mr. Fawzi though

    I love how people will try to do whatever they can to take away from a situation that shows how a normal person carrying a firearm can stop a potentially deadly situation.

    it's a nice story BUT if the man actually did have a bomb the ccw holder could have caused him to trip the bomb killing everyone inside. If someone is determined to hit a button a 9mm isn't going to put his lights out quick enough to be sure the prevent that.
     
  12. If I had to guess, I'd guess that 6 years spent in the Lebanese army probably gives you a pretty good idea as to whether someone actually has a bomb on them or not.

    Unpossable, if someone pulled a gun in a situation like that no one would know who the bad guy was, police would come in and shoot everyone, the guy with the handgun would get a billionty people killed. ban concealed carry.

    Pretty sure if you shoot someone right between the eyes or at the base of the skull it will hit the cerebellum which immediately immobilizes the person.

    Pretty sure Comerica Bank is not a federal building.

    I don't think banks are considered "federal buildings". I don't believe it's any different from a private entity/business.
     
  19. What does this have to do with this thread?

    Story was posted, argument ensued about a bunch of what ifs and people refused to give credit to the guy.
