When is a bank robber not a bank robber?

A bank customer who was unhappy with the service he received decided to call police and tell them the bank was being robbed.
John Pighee had tried to withdraw money from a branch of Bank of America – but when he was refused he said he would ‘shut the bank down.’
“As odd as it sounds, we took a bank robbery (call) from the bank robber,’ said police.
“He picked up his cell phone, called 911 and reported that the bank was being robbed,” police added. “He never relayed to the employees he was going to rob the bank, and he never showed a weapon.”
After about 15 to 20 minutes of talking by phone with the branch’s employees from the parking lot, police determined the bank was not, in fact, being robbed. They promptly entered the building and arrested Pighee.
He was charged with felony disorderly conduct, Teppel said.
“It was one of the most unusual calls we have received,” he said.

He showed them!
