A man captured after authorities say he tried to flee a bank robbery in Denver doesn't seem too upset about his arrest.

The mug shot taken after 45-year-old Michael Whitington's Tuesday arrest shows him with a broad, toothy smile and his eyes open wide.



Police say he robbed a bank on Denver's 16th Street pedestrian mall and then tried to get away on a light-rail train. Officers stopped the train a few blocks away and arrested him.



He has been charged with one count of robbery and is due to appear in court this Tuesday to be advised of the charge.

He's being held in jail, and it's not clear whether he has a lawyer yet.
