ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) –A St. Louis mother of three was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday for robbing a White Castle with a water gun.
Michelle White, 33, handed a White Castle employee a threatening note and then pulled out a water gun, according to prosecutors.
"The employees ran to the back of the restaurant, so White squeezed through the drive thru window and stole more than $600," Asst. Circuit Attorney Melissa Giliam said.
A firefighter noticed the crime and wrote down White's license plate number and called police.
"Police found her at her home, but she proceeded to jump off the roof," Gilliam said.
White broke her arm, leg and pelvis during the fall.
"She almost died," Gilliam said.
Gilliam told FOX2 White was on drugs.
White's criminal history includes killing someone while driving drunk.
