Advice To Crooks: Don't Rob A Hockey Player

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - If you're going to pick people to rob, it's probably not a good idea to choose an Alaska commercial fisherman and an amateur hockey player. Police report the fisherman and hockey player were held up by an armed man, while they returned to the Anchorage Sheraton. Authorities say the suspect took them inside their hotel room, pointed the gun at their heads and demanded money. But it was robber who ended up unconscious, as the intended victims took away his gun. Police say suspect Terry Butler woke up in a closet, with a security guard standing over him. Butler's now charged with assault and two counts of robbery.
