An Australian detective and former rugby player ditched his own recorded interview to make a caught-on-video tackle of an alleged criminal who was being chased.
Detective Daren Edwards sprung into action and rekindled his former sporting days when he brought the 39-year-old suspect to the floor. The man he flattened was quickly handcuffed and charged with inappropriate communication with a teen, Reuters reports.
The Sunshine Coasts top detective was addressing the media when he suddenly stopped to tackle a serial pest, in an impressive display of his rugby league past. @jessica_ross10 #7NEWS pic.twitter.com/4Z0L2HY5Bv
