On this edition of Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards shares a story from Sarasota, Florida where U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Eddie Peoples was at a bank with his kids when a robber walked in waiving a gun around and demanding money. Peoples and his family took cover until the suspect left, then Peoples followed him out. He wedged the suspect's vehicle in, took his gun away, took the stolen money away and put him on the ground until police arrived. Suspect Matthew Rogers, 34, has been arrested.
