Prison time for man in bank robbery


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Prison time is ordered Tuesday for a man who robbed a western Wisconsin bank.

Denton Ewers of River Falls got 2.5 years in prison. Prosecutors say Ewers admitted robbing the Plum City branch of the First Bank of Baldwin last November.

A teller says Ewers threatened to shoot her unless he got money. Officers pulled him over a short time later and found $5,000 in his car. They say he was also intoxicated, and arrested him for 5th offense drunk driving.
