A purse snatcher in Carrollton, Texas, learned the hard way just how fast a Kansas State football player can run.
Kip Daily, a former defensive back for the Wildcats, put his speed to good use for the Carrollton Police Department earlier this week when, according to a post on the department's Facebook page, he chased down and apprehended a suspect who tried to run away from the scene of a crime.
"We are all K-State fans at CPD today," the Facebook post continued. "A purse snatcher made the REALLY bad decision to run from rookie Officer Kip Daily this afternoon. See, what the bad guy didn't know was that before he caught criminals, Daily caught interceptions as a Defensive Back for the Wildcats. Running is kind of what he does. We are glad he's on our team now."
Daily is a rookie officer with the Carrollton Police.
