A man in the Chicago area who is a talented writer and musician got arrested for robbing a bank.

Could you call this guy a triple threat? His name is Thomas Tynan. He plays in a band named after himself called "Tynan." He wrote the novel "Pair-a-Dimes." He's also a criminal. Well, he went to jail, so maybe crime isn't his thing.

According to herald-news.com,

"He engineered the attempted jailbreak of an alleged Russian mobster. And he pulled a daring bank heist only 2 miles from his home while wearing nothing but a baseball cap and sunglasses as a disguise."

That sounds like some serious crimes. Maybe he should have just stuck with his creative background.
