‘Black Panther’ Director Ryan Coogler Wrongly Targeted As Bank Robber Bank employees at a Bank of America in Atlanta mistakingly took Blank Panther director Ryan Coogler for a bank robber. In January he went to the bank to withdraw $12,000. He handed the teller a note asking her to do the count somewhere else as he was trying to be discreet. This led to the teller thinking suspicious was happening and police were called. After Ryan was handcuffed and detained police said the entire incident was a huge mistake. Ryan said, this situation should never have happened. However, Bank of America worked with me and addressed it to my satisfaction and we have moved on. Have you ever been accused of something you didn’t do? How did you handle it?
