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.

Several dogs are sick and a few have even died in a case being investigated by Columbus Humane as a possible poisoning attack in North Linden.

Gypsy was the registered support animal of Hannah Broadway, reports NBC4i. A Facebook post that Broadway was tagged it revealed Gypsy was discovered in a pool of her own blood, having suffered organ ruptures. She ultimately died from internal bleeding.

Broadway then posted an update of her own, saying she is "still at a loss for words as to what happened."

But, before Gypsy or any of the other dogs got sick, an anonymous person made threats to another pet owner in the area.

Broadway's neighbor Elaine Putnam received a letter in the mail with no return address, threatening to give her dog "a couple rat poison meatballs" if she didn't get her dog to stop barking.

Putnam believes the person who sent the letter is also the person targeting other local animals.

The Franklin County Animal Care and Control anticipates more dogs in the area to show signs of being possibly poisoned. They advise dog owners to survey the yard before taking them out to use the bathroom.

Samples from the effected dogs are currently being tested to confirm or deny poisoning.

Columbus Humane is asking that anyone with any information come forward.

A man is on the loose after allegedly attempting to rob two Donatos Pizza employees with a machete in south Columbus on Saturday.

According to 10TV, Columbus police say an unknown male carrying a machete entered the Donatos in the 1000 block of Thurman Avenue around 11:10am.

He approached an employee and demanded money from the register. The employee did not comply despite the suspect threatening to kill him.

The suspect then demanded money from a delivery driver in the parking lot. This employee refused, also.

Police say the suspect fled on foot and was last seen running northbound in the alley and turning westbound between houses around the area of 1267 Oakwood Drive.

The suspect is described as a white male between 20-40 years old, 150 pounds and 5'6". 10TV adds he had a black eye on the right and a shiny area on his face that appeared to be a skin graft.
