Pizza delivery man trips suspect on the run from police: video


A pizza delivery man in Pennsylvania delivered more than just a pie on Sunday afternoon after he was caught on video tripping a suspect being chased by police outside a home.

Tyler Morrell, a delivery driver for Cocco’s Pizza Aston, notched the law enforcement assist around 3 p.m. while he was bringing a pizza order to a home in Brookhaven.

“Thank you sir for the assist!!!” the Brookhaven Police Department said in a post sharing video of the encounter. “If you’re interested in a job we are always looking for good people.”

The homeowner shared video from a Ring doorbell camera capturing Morrell’s heroic moment.

“Honestly, I didn’t really think about doing anything but stepping in. I was raised to step in if you see something that’s not right. So, I just wanted to do my part,” Morrell said, joking that he tried his best to “prevent the cheese from sliding” on the pizza as he assisted police.

Morrell joked that the pizza “was completely unharmed and enjoyed” by the homeowner. 

Cocco’s also wrote on Facebook that after his heroics, Morrell “still delivered the food unharmed.”
