The term “all in the family” apparently applies to committing crimes for a Texas father-daughter duo. A 41-year-old man and his 19-year-old daughter robbed a bank, and then led police on a high-speed chase Thursday (Sept. 10) afternoon.
Michael Bailey entered the Grandview Bank wearing all black with a bandana over his face (clearly, he wanted to stand out), and demanded a teller give him money. Then he jumped over the counter and grabbed the cash himself.
Afterwards, Bailey hopped in a red Hyundai where his daughter, Megan, was waiting. They attempted to flee the scene, but there were obvious holes in the plan, because cops were on to them pretty quickly.
The Father of the Year then led authorities on a car chase reaching speeds of up to 150 mph, endangering both himself and his daughter, who was in the passenger seat. He later crashed into a tree, and was arrested alongside his seed. Police also found a semi-automatic pistol in the car.
Bailey’s wife says he hasn’t been the same since returning from fighting in Afghanistan. The daughter tolld police that she didn’t believe her father was actually going to rob the bank, even though he told her would do so. Cops found some of the $12,000 he stole in the daughter’s purse.
Both were arrested and taken to the Johnson County Jail. Papa Bailey was charged with aggravated robbery and evading arrest, and Megan was hit with the same robbery charge.
