Yuma, Ariz., City Councilman Al Krieger proved he's a crime fighter
in and out of the office. As he sat in his truck late one morning,
he heard a loud noise behind him. He turned to see that a vehicle
had crashed and was beginning to speed off. Unbeknownst to Krieger,
the driver was fleeing from a police officer who had just clocked
him driving 71 mph on a city street. "I've got to get this guy,"
Krieger said to himself. The alleged hit-and-run driver turned onto
a dead-end street, so Krieger blocked him in. The man then bumped
Krieger's truck in an unsuccessful attempt to escape, then got out
of his car. He opened Krieger's door, grabbed his arm and attempted
to pull him from the vehicle. Krieger then reached for his .38-cal.
revolver. "As soon as he saw I had a gun in my hand, he turned and
ran," Krieger said. The officer who had initially witnessed the
speeding vehicle arrived on the scene shortly thereafter and, after
a short foot pursuit, apprehended the suspect.
