Trevor Gladston has been charged with attempted bank robbery.   (Chamblee Police Department)

(Newser) – Police in suburban Atlanta say they have arrested a bank robber so inept that he couldn't get his own money out of the bank. Trevor Gladston, 39, left a Wells Fargo branch empty-handed after handing a teller a note asking for money, police say. Problem? The failed robbery left him sans cash for the ride home, and his cabbie wasn't buying his story that he'd get money for the fare out of his car at a metro station, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The cabbie hailed a transit officer, who talked Gladston into returning to the bank for money for the cab fare—where, predictably, he was arrested by another officer who noticed that he matched the description of the would-be robber.

This guy could be kin to Obama, so he will probably get a presidential pardon, then they can share the Darwin award.
