iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A New York City man who sought fame by breaking painful records like speed-eating light bulbs apparently isn’t too bright.

Cops were looking for Robert Williams in connection with a string of eleven bank robberies in New York, reports the New York Daily News.

When Williams returned to one of the Brooklyn banks he allegedly knocked over on Wednesday, employees immediately recognized him — and not for his bulb-eating record.

Williams was arrested and charged with robbing eleven banks.
