MIDLOTHIAN, TX - Daniel Gaskey, a former Marine, has been a firefighter with the Mansfield Fire Department for a year now. Daniel stays busy when he's on-duty. But even some off-duty days can be rather eventful...
Daniel was waiting in line at a local convenience store this past month, when a man entered the store. But this man had no intention of buying anything. He shoved Daniel aside and pulled out a knife, threatening the cashier. That didn't last long. Daniel grabbed the would-be robber in a chokehold, took him down to the ground, and disarmed him. He then continued to keep him pinned down until police arrived and took the man into custody. The whole thing was caught on the store video cameras. This was one bad guy that didn't stand a chance!
ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Ana Dean, a 61-year-old grandmother, had her late husband's truck stolen from her this past month. Determined to get the truck back, she set off in her car to see what she could find. Guess who she saw driving right past her? It was a man in the stolen truck! Ana saw the truck pull into a driveway. The man got out and went into a house. Ana pulled into the driveway behind the truck, blocking the exit. Then she locked her doors and called 911.
The man and a woman soon came out of the house. They started the truck and motioned for Ana to move her car. She refused. Then they came over and started yelling and pounding on her windows. Just as they got back in the truck and were preparing to ram Ana's car, the police showed up. The man, Jasen Mulvaney, was arrested, and is now being charged with receiving or transferring a stolen motor vehicle.
Ana might be a grandmother, but she's one tough lady!
