Friday, January 1, 1982

Hugh Wade saw a man try to rob a pair of young women on a Detroit street and gave chase in his car as the crook took flight. When the criminal ran up a narrow alley, Wade leaped from his car, drew his licensed pistol and fired two warning shots, stopping the man's flight. Wade held the would-be robber for police, who recommended him for a citation. He had won one such award in 1972 for rescuing an old woman from a purse- snatcher.
