SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - San Bernardino's police chief has hit the streets - literally.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/StVlUj) says Chief Rob Handy tackled a suspected thief on a sidewalk on Wednesday.
Police say the chief, wearing a suit, was heading to a meeting with a local Neighborhood Watch leader at a restaurant when he was told someone outside was peddling power tools.
Handy talked to the man, suspected the tools were stolen and called for a patrol car.
When it arrived, police say the man took off with Handy in pursuit. The man dropped a gun during the chase before he was tackled by Handy.
An officer helped Handy arrest the 22-year-old transient. Police say the tools were stolen that day from an auto center.
