Tom Hardy Auditions For James Bond With Real-Life Citizen’s Arrest After Moped Thieves Pounce In London
Tom Hardy has already warmed hearts by displaying his softer side when accompanying his dog to a red carpet film launch, now he has established his real life hero credentials by chasing down a moped thief in London.
Tom Hardy apprehended a thief in London after a short foot chase through private gardens. Hardy presumably witnessed the event that saw two men arrested on suspicion of stealing a motor vehicle. The Mad Max and Legend star was not going to let the thief escape, chasing the men and apprehending one. A witness – Arun Pullen – said, “He went off like a shot in pursuit and looked furious.”
Pullen, who was speaking to The Sun newspaper, added: “Tom must have been walking down the road [when it happened]. I asked Tom what happened and he told me he chased him through my back garden and caught him around the block – but the route was like an assault course.”
Hardy declined to comment, the humble actor clearly seeing no heroics in his efforts. But a police spokesperson confirmed his involvement, stating: “”We can confirm that there were two people on a stolen moped that went through a red light and crashed into another vehicle. The males ran off and one was detained by Tom Hardy.”
