    Apparently this is in Illinois. Here's the guy, Michael Buhrman:

    I'm not sure a mere $20,000 bail is sufficient, nor that this gent should be out on bail. The woman must have been terrified, and I think reckless endangerment was committed here.

    Who's to say he won't be "thrill seeking" again a week after he makes bail? What about on the job?

    Sky diving only endangers oneself, and can thereby be counted as mere "thrill seeking." Terrorizing someone at gunpoint is a serious crime with a victim. That goes well beyond "thrill seeking." The words "criminally insane" pop to mind.
    Sunny Goth and Lisa Simeone like this.

    Elizabeth, totally agree. This guy is nuts.
