Norman Tammons has been charged with four counts of robbery and two counts of leaving the scene of an accident after he allegedly stole three cars Saturday in St. Louis and crashed all three vehicles within minutes.

According to authorities, the 31-year-old from Centreville approached a man at Barnes-Jewish Hospital the evening of December 3 and showed him what he believed to be a knife. Tammons then allegedly ordered the man to fork over his Honda CRV. The two struggled briefly before Tammons pulled away from the scene in the stolen CRV.

Minutes later police say Tammons crashed the vehicle into a divider on the exit ramp on westbound I-64 at Hampton. He immediately left the vehicle and approached two motorist in a Mitsubishi Mirage parked at the stoplight. Tammons allegedly pulled the driver and passenger out of the vehicle and fled southbound on Hampton where he crashed into a median about a mile away at Hampton and Wilson.

Tammons then exited the vehicle and ran to the nearby Shell/Circle K convenience store, say police. There he allegedly approached a man and told him he had a gun and wanted his 1998 Chevrolet Blazer. The owner of the vehicle ran off and Tammons entered the Blazer but didn't drive away. Instead, he ran inside the Circle K where he looted the cash register and took the keys to the clerk's 1999 Ford Taurus.

Tammons then drove off in the Taurus but once again crashed about a mile away at Hampton and Juniata. That's where police finally caught up with him. Tammons was sent to the hospital for injuries and is now in police custody.

Diversity: White "Man" works to earn his keep, Brown "Boy" takes what the White Man earns.

I'm tired of people grouping all people of one race together. There are also Black "men" that work to earn his keep and white "boys" that take what the Black Man earns. It's sad that people hide behind their computer screens.

Apparently it is possible for someone to drive worse than an oriental woman

Most blacks are driving around in a smashed up car. Note: It's always front or side damage indicating they are at fault.

Oh! Here we go! Here come the racists again. He's a SUSPECT! Do you know what that means? white racist honky crackers carjack people way more than African Americans do. You don't hear about it though because of racism.

The knife was made by racist whites just like guns and drugs and alcohol and shipped in to African American neighborhoods.
