He lived the Hollywood lifestyle, partying and hanging out with celebrity friends when he fell in love and took the biggest risk of his life to impress his new girlfriend - he robbed a bank. The thrill of the initial heist was so intoxicating that Dodson robbed more than 72 banks over a period of a few months in the Los Angeles area before the FBI finally nailed him.
