Tucson, AZ – Monday, January 30, Tucson resident William Sponaas took down a thief outside of the Big Lots store.
Sponaas says he saw a man trying to get away after stealing a shopping cart full of socks. While he was busy chasing after the bad guy, his daughter Mariah was back at the car calling for 911.
The two made their way across the intersection weaving through strip malls. About an hour later, Sponaas took the guy down when he tried to push Sponaas into traffic.
“I tripped his feet from underneath him and grabbed the back of his ankles and held him down,” described Sponaas.
Eventually police showed up and arrested the guy. The whole event lasted an hour. It was an exhausting experience for Sponaas, but he says he would do it again.
