BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- Authorities say a 55-year-old man suspected of robbing a Boulder bank feigned a heart attack during his arrest.

The Daily Camera reports (http://bit.ly/ZgU1WX) James William Cranfill struggled with police and yelled as he was being handcuffed near downtown Boulder on Thursday. Authorities say he then faked a heart attack and was taken to a nearby hospital.

Cranfill is accused of entering the FirstBank at the corner of Pearl and 28th streets March 16 and handing a teller a note demanding money. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
