ENID, Okla. (AP) -- A man is undergoing a mental evaluation after police say he tried to rob a bank of $4-trillion to repay the national debt.

Police say the 27-year-old man entered the Bank of America on Friday, asked for the money and said if he didn't get it everyone would die.

Police did not identify the man, but say he was taken into custody without incident and delivered to Griffin Memorial Hospital in Norman for an evaluation.
