    If only Darwin had intervened...

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- Surveillance video of a bank robbery surprised detectives when it showed the bandit holding a gun in a strange manner, even backward during the holdup.

    "(The robber) is holding it in a manner that he's probably not familiar with handguns and was afraid it was going to go off," Orange County sheriff's Detective Jason Sams said. "If that was a fake gun, he would be holding it normally because he wouldn't care."

    Investigators said the bandit was wearing a new Cleveland Indians baseball cap when he walked into the Fifth-Third bank on the corner of University Boulevard and Goldenrod Road.



    The man then handed a bank teller a piece of paper before showing a weapon.

    During the robbery, surveillance video showed the bandit holding the weapon in an unusual manner and then apparently pointing it at himself before walking out of the bank.

    Detectives said the man appears to be familiar with the area and may be from the University of Central Florida area.

    Police also said the man had a T-shirt wrapped around his neck, possibly to cover up a tattoo.

    Anyone with information about the crime is urged to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.

    Obviously, if caught, he intended to blame it on his other personality forceing him to rob the bank. Mystery solved!

    Anyone else reminded of a scene from Blazing Saddles?
