Dec. 16, 2011 — West Palm Beach

Keshaun Fleming, 29, walked into a McDonald's dressed as a woman and held up the cashier at gunpoint.

As patrons fled, off-duty U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Wilson Pellot-Soto went to his car, retrieved his gun and returned to the restaurant. He told Fleming to drop his weapon.
