Martin Tucker won his latest boxing match, but a bloody nose in the ring could send him to prison for bank robbery. The FBI said it obtained a swab used to stop the bleeding and found that Tucker’s DNA matched DNA on other evidence from a 2009 robbery at Monroe County Community Credit Union in Temperance, near the Michigan-Ohio border. In a court filing, agent Robert Schmitz said he got the swab while attending Tucker’s bout in April in Toledo, Ohio. He described it as “discarded” but didn’t disclose any other details about how he got it. Tucker’s DNA matched DNA from a mask believed to have been used in the robbery and from the steering wheel of the getaway car, the FBI said. Tucker, 32, of Toledo, was arrested this week and ordered held without bond Wednesday. The government alleges he wore a mask and had a handgun during the $5,400 robbery. Another suspect was indicted in the case in November.
Ummm, glass half full – at least he won the boxing match, maybe? This seriously blows your mind. Now every NFL player is going to be looking over his shoulder to see if some dude takes a bloody towel or bandage out of the garbage before he goes back on the field. I have to give the FBI some credit, those dudes are next level. Some creeper just chillen at a boxing match looking to snag a bloody swab. Forensics in sports could be the new hot shit – some dude steal Lolo Jones’ sheets and black light ‘em!
