Utah basketball coach Larry Krystkowiak has no tolerance of thievery. The former NBA power forward chased down and subdued a campus bike thief on his way to work Saturday morning. He spotted the man riding down the street with a second bicycle.
“The guy asked me if I was going to chase him if he attempted to run,” Krystkowiak said Saturday night. “I told him that if he tried to run, I was going to chase him and tackle him. Honestly, I was hoping that he’d run. I guess a good thief would’ve run before I caught up to him.”
The thief also had five phones in his possession.
Smelled a rat and chased him down and made him sit on sidewalk while campus police came. 5 stolen phones in bag too! Barney Fife!
