The Mopinator Goes National, Again.

August 3, 2006; Posted at 11:00 PM CDT

Fame has a funny way of following a man.

"Would i do it again? Yeah."

Lucas Jenkins says 'yeah' even though he admits defending his place of work against a 2x4 wielding robber last spring wasn't the smartest thing he could have done.

The original tape of the event aired on Crimestoppers and shortly there-after, the man we named the "Mopinator" was going national. Jimmy Kimmel, Good Morning America and easily hundreds of local news operations across the country aired it. And now Court TV is exposing the Mopinator's secret identity again. The network sent a three-person crew out of nashville to tell the mopinator's story for court tv fans.
