• A man in Virginia has been arrested after attempting to rob the same pharmacy twice in one day, once while wielding a sword. Michael Edward Towler, 27, has been charged with robbery, brandishing a weapon and attempted robbery. The pharmacist on duty told police that when Towler returned to attempt to rob the pharmacy again, he was wearing a lime green rain coat and was armed with a three-foot long sword. Towler made off with an undisclosed amount of narcotics but was arrested at his home a short time later. Word on the street is Matt Dillon is angling to portray Towler in a yet-to-be-green-lighted film, Drugstore Ninja, just as long as Gus Van Sant is the director. (Rest in peace, William S.
