Utah mayor doing his part

Another good, upstanding kid from a good family was caught red handed while perpetrating a crime recently. He was burglarizing a house and tried to make off with a bicycle , when one of the residents tackled him and put him in a headlock.

Said resident? The resident mayor.

That's right, Utah residents can proud themselves in having a mayor who isn't afraid to tackle crime head on, even when facing an opponent who is bigger and heavier than himself.

Fox has a video interview on their site, if you're interested in seeing this mayor, a slender man who has more in store than you'd think at first sight.

Now, as much as I love reading stories like this, I don't think he did the right thing. Unless you know absolutely sure that the "bad guy" doesn't have a knife or gun, it may not be such a good idea to lie down on top of him, not unless you know exactly what your doing with that headlock anyway.
A better idea would have been to tackle the guy, get up again and suggest he'd stay down, persuading him to do so by pointing a home-defence weapon at him.

But hey, all well if ends well right?
kudos to you Mr. Mayor, I don't think he'll try that again.
