Wintergreen was a bank robber who lived with his girlfriend Dinah until they died following a failed bank robbery.
Wintergreen kicked in the door to his apartment only minutes before he was scheduled to rob a bank with his girlfriend and his cousin, to find her removing a bear trap from Jerry Smith's leg. He first threatened Jerry with a knife, but upon learning from Dinah that Jerry has car, they instead changed to belittle Jerry and slap him. This was cut short by a police officer knocking on the door, who turned out to be dirty and requested a strip dance by Jerry in exchange for not arresting them for beating up Jerry. After knocking out the distracted police officer with a vase, they ran to Jerry's car where they met up with Wintergreen's cousin and drove to the bank. The robbery was a failure, with the cousin panicking by the sight of a guard's gun and Wintergreen being shot, and they retreated to Jerry's car. An argument ensued, but a bump in the road made the cousin lose his gun which shot and killed all the robbers in the car.
