Fancy Footwork: Thug Stopped By Good Samaritan

Bill" was at a west Columbus library with his granddaughter.  He was  waiting outside to leave when he heard police sirens.  He tells us he  looked around and saw a man with his hand in his waistband running  toward him. "Bill" assessed the situation as fast as he could, cane in hand.  He  heard officers yelling multiple times to drop the gun.  "Bill" says with  officers lagging a bit behind the suspect he did what he could to help  them nab the armed man. Bill stuck out a back leg to trip the suspect who was running from  police.  That move likely saved the 18-year-old suspect's life.  It also  allowed police to catch up to him to make the arrest. Police recovered a Glock 9 MM pistol with a high capacity extended clip  containing 29 rounds.  The suspect, with a lengthy criminal record, went  back to jail.  No one was injured. Community involvement, be it by courage, bravery and/or fancy footwork,  helped take a criminal off the streets of Columbus.   Thank you "Bill" for sticking your leg out for us.
