Not everyone can step up and be a hero in an emergency.  But doing NOTHING is better than THIS.



Recently, a guy in Williamson, Illinois named Larry Lotter COLLAPSED while he was out at a bar with some friends.  We're not sure how old he is, but from the photos in the news he looks like he's in his late 40s.  (Williamson is about 40 miles northeast of St. Louis.)



Everyone assumed it was a heart attack, and several people went to help, including a 32-year-old named Bryan Kuegler, who got down on his hands and knees next to him. 



But what no one noticed was . . . Bryan was actually stealing Larry's WALLET.  And after an ambulance took Larry away, Bryan used the cash to buy the entire bar a ROUND OF DRINKS . . . including Larry's DATE.  It's not clear why she stayed behind.



Luckily, a security camera clearly caught it all on video, and Bryan was arrested.  He's facing two to five years in jail for theft.



Also, it turns out Larry DIDN'T have a heart attack . . . his doctors aren't sure what happened.  But they say Bryan might have slipped something into his beer.
