Passerby sees suspect flee, tackles him

Posted: Updated:

ERLANGER, Ky. (AP) -- When northern Kentucky resident Brandon Black saw a suspect fleeing from police along a busy interstate, he knew what he had to do: help.

A statement from Boone County Sheriff says Black, of Hebron, was driving along Interstate 275 near Erlanger when he witnessed a man running from a traffic stop. The statement says Black stopped his car, tackled the runner and held on to him until officers caught up.

Police say 41-year-old Dennis Mobley of Burlington was wanted on a parole violation. In addition, he was charged with giving an officer a false name, fleeing from police, wanton endangerment, resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
