I wouldn't wanna be arrested or pulled over by this officer Lol. Not only did he man handle someone with a similar body structure and age as him, he also did it while being interviewed.

The filmer pissed me off. The officer is trying to pin someone down, and he's interviewing him.

The cop is being interviewed because the guy filming is on the phone with 911. Cameraman is only relaying questions the 911 dispatcher is asking.

Dispatcher is only gather necessary information to relay to the responding officers so that they can react properly when they arrive. i.e. if any weapons are present, how bad of a struggle is occurring, verifying that the Polish guy is a member.

Keep in mind the filmer mentions various times to the dispatcher that he can help, but emphasizes that the cop has a pretty good hold on the suspect - and that he does.

The Province has an story on it: Video: Off-duty Mountie grapples with alleged shoplifter for five minutes until arrest is made

Basically just a brief summary of what happened in the video:
Quote:
VANCOUVER — An alert videographer captured a struggle between an alleged shoplifter and a man who chased him down and pinned him for five minutes until police arrived.

The epic ground battle posted to YouTube Friday was easily won by the citizen making the arrest — which might have something to do with the fact he's an off-duty North Vancouver RCMP officer.

The video begins with the pair grappling on foot briefly before the Mountie flips the suspect to the ground in an alley near St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver.

While struggling to get away, the suspect insists repeatedly that he left the allegedly stolen items back at the store the duo raced away from.

"I put the stuff back," says the suspect. "Let go of me, man. You're ruining my life!"

As they continue to struggle, the videographer, still filming the action, calls 911 and calmly relays to a dispatcher the progress of the citizen's arrest.

"I'm a police officer, OK," the Mountie explains to the frantic suspect, while giving out his badge number and saying he's in plain clothes because he's off duty.

As sirens draw near several minutes into the wrestling match, the agitated suspect again shouts, "My life is ruined!"

Three Vancouver cops then arrive to handcuff and arrest the man.

Don't know how much help a 69 year old would do with restraining a guy half his age anyways.

Oddly enough, my buddy also off duty member at the time assisted an LPO who was struggling with a resisting thief near the skytrain station on the same day.

He ruined his own life. He had outstanding warrants, which means he's hiding for other crimes. He just so happened to have been stopped by this dude. He should get no sympathy from anyone.
