A Crestview man is in the Okaloosa County jail, accused of robbing two people who gave him a lift.
Forty six year old William John Beatty is charged with armed robbery and violating probation. Okaloosa County Sheriff's investigators said Beatty pulled a knife on two acquaintances who gave him a ride and stole $30.00.
As a deputy was interviewing the victims, he said Beatty showed up and claimed he'd been at a bar drinking. When the deputy arrested Beatty, he only had $20.00 left.
