Detective stops press conference to tackle some guy running past


If you're running away from something, make sure it's not right by a pack of cameras, and the police.

An Australian detective who was speaking at a press conference on Wednesday jumped into action when a man, who allegedly made inappropriate comments to a teenage girl, was chased by her father.

As per a video posted by 9 News, the detective, senior sergeant Daren Edwards, swiftly sensed the commotion behind him, and tackled the man sprinting past, who was then accosted by police. The absolute drama.
