ROGERSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say a man who demanded cash from a U.S. Bank in Rogersville told a teller the Secret Service owed it to him for “taking down terrorists.”

A police report obtained by the Kingsport Times-News (https://bit.ly/1VN4uH4) says 22-year-old Derrick Goins didn’t ask for a specific amount of money on Tuesday but demanded “two bags of cash, and the rest in his account.”

Police Chief Doug Nelson said Goins told officers after his arrest they could call the CIA for more information.

Goins is charged with attempted robbery and was being held without bond pending arraignment as of Wednesday morning. Jail officials did not know if he had an attorney.

Goins also faces charges from a May 21 incident where Hawkins County deputies say he was walking naked across a bridge.
