Not All Heroes Wear Capes: Man trips armed suspect fleeing from the fuzz

A word of advice to anyone contemplating a life of crime: always be aware of your surroundings. Another tidbit of life advice to any soon-to-be criminals out there: maybe try something else?

I’m sure that’s what the suspect in this video is thinking after he was arrested and taken to the Franklin County Jail where he had plenty of time to reflect on his life choices.

The suspect in the video who fell flat on his face was on the run from the cops and appeared to be carrying a weapon of some sorts. Most people, myself included, would see a situation like this arise, run inside to the nearest adult, cry (a lot), and just hope no one notices I just wet my pants. But for the man who was just standing outside of the west side Columbus Library waiting on his granddaughter, he was the slyest and coolest cat in the city.

Just wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, and BAM! How’s that brick pavement taste, my man? Here, maybe these handcuffs can help take your mind off the pain in your face…

It turns out the suspect was armed with a Glock holding 28 shots, but it didn’t do him a damn thing thanks to the help of the man outside the library. After Sir Runs-A-Lot was tripped (with the most graceful and perfectly timed trip, we may add), he dropped his weapon and was immediately cuffed and taken downtown.

In a scene that's being described as "disturbing," hundreds of animals, both dead and alive, were removed from a local pet store and residency Tuesday.

Columbus Humane agents seized about 100 reptiles, more than 90 dogs and puppies, and more than 50 livestock animals (turkeys, goats, pigs) from the Petting Zoo Pet Shop on West Broad Street and the owner’s residence on Demorest Road, reports 10TV.

The rescue and recover mission was the culmination of a months-long investigation into multiple complaints of improper caring of animals.

Columbus Humane will soon make available a list of supplies needed to care for the surviving animals.

Once the owner is in custody, charges will be filed.
