LAWTON, Okla._The Lawton Police Department is investigating after a bank teller was given a threatening note.

The note read, “Hello my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die.” It’s a direct quote from “The Princess Bride,” a 1987 movie. The bank teller received the note from a man in the bank’s drive-thru at 2:30 p.m. Monday. The man sat in his vehicle in the drive-thru for several minutes and then drove off.

Police say the bank teller took the note as a threatening message and they will investigate it as such.

The man in question saw this story and talked to police just after 4:00 p.m. Tuesday. He told them it "was a joke and he was trying to make the bank clerk smile."
