Gorillaman Trips Up Fleeing Suspect

You never know when you will be called upon to act the hero. For Andy Ingham of Canterbury, England, that time came as he was dressed as a gorilla! Ingham was promoting his gym business by handing out free passes and bananas to passers-by on February 18th. Meanwhile, police were chasing a suspect over a bridge. A female officer tried to arrest the man, but he pushed her down on the bridge and fled.
Mr Ingham said: “When you are in a gorilla suit it is quite hard to see out of it to begin with. You actually have to hold someone’s hand as you walk along otherwise you fall over.

“If I had been able to see I would have rugby-tackled him, but I also had my hands full of bags. So as he ran towards me I jumped in front of him and gave him a really good kick in the legs to try and trip him up so someone else could jump on him.

“He stumbled and nearly fell over and tried to run off down the road, at which point he was apprehended by the rest of the police and taken away.”

The 24-year-old suspect was charged with assault and resisting arrest. http://www.kentnews.co.uk/kent-news/Gorillaman-swings-to-the-rescue-of-woman-cop-newsinkent33403.aspx -via Arbroath
