Anarchy In Action

Las Vegas, Nevada--The police say a man robbed a bank here and then casually doled out $100 bills to stunned bystanders, cheerfully urging them to ``have a nice day.''

Officers arrested Ronald M. Chroniak, 46, on Friday shortly after the robbery of a Bank of America branch, the authorities said. When they found him, he was handing out money, they say.

It all started when a man walked into the bank around noon and handed a teller a note demanding money. After receiving an undisclosed amount, he strolled out and, the police say, began sharing the booty.

Alexander McNair said he was eating lunch in the bank courtyard when a man walked up and handed him a $100 bill.

``Where'd you get the money, man?'' Mr. McNair asked as he stared at the slightly crumpled bill. Mr. McNair said the man told him: ``I just robbed the bank. Have a nice day.''
