(TEMPERANCE, Mich.) -- A boxer could be facing jail time following his most recent boxing match, thanks to a bloody nose and a resourceful FBI agent.
Martin Tucker, a light welterweight, won his last boxing match, but a bloody cotton swab discarded at the ring was picked up by undercover FBI agent Robert Schmitz, who was investigating a Michigan bank robbery.
Schmitz suspected Tucker was involved in a 2009 armed robbery of a credit union in Temperance, Mich. Subsequent tests of the DNA collected from the bloody swab proved his hunch correct, according to court filings.
Tucker, a roofer and part-time boxer, was arrested this week, and ordered held without bail Wednesday. He’s accused of using a semi-automatic weapon in the theft of nearly $5,400.
One other man involved in the robbery, Quentin Sherer, was arrested in November 2011.
