Two cops in New York were chasing a guy on foot last week, and he ended up joining a half-marathon that was going on in Central Park.
We don’t know if he was TRYING to be clever, but it does sound like a good way to hide . . . you get to blend in AND keep running.
Unfortunately it didn’t work out for him . . . because 90 of the people running were ALSO cops
They were off-duty police officers from England, who’d flown in to raise money for a cancer charity. The best part is they were running in UNIFORMS . . . they all had those British police helmets on.
One of them is a 28-year-old named Alex Courts, who was about ten miles into the race when he saw the two cops chasing the guy.
He says he didn’t even have to break his stride. He just kept running . . . waited until the guy was right in front of him . . . and tackled him to the ground.
Then after the dude was in handcuffs, Alex finished the last three miles of the race.

According to “Forbes”, here are the 10 most common body language mistakes people make, and why you shouldn’t do them . . .
- Avoiding eye contact. You look like you’re hiding something, or don’t respect the other person.
- Slouching. It looks like your energy is zapped, and you have low self-esteem.
- A weak handshake. Which can signal a lack of authority.
- Crossing your arms. It makes you seem standoffish and not interested in what the other person is saying.
- Looking at the ground when you talk. It makes you seem weak and self-conscious.
- Angling your body away from the other person instead of facing them. It makes it seem like you want the conversation to end.
- Fidgeting. It makes you seem anxious.
- Standing too close. When you talk to someone, you should always be at least a foot-and-a-half away from them.
- Glancing at the clock. It makes you seem disinterested and arrogant.
- Frowning or scowling. You can do it unconsciously, and it makes it seem like you’re disagreeing with what someone said, which isn’t necessarily the case.
Unless you’re unemployed or a 90-year-old woman, you probably didn’t catch “The Price Is Right” yesterday, and that’s a shame.
A contestant named Eliot got two really great spins on the wheel, which totaled to about $26,000 in prize money. To celebrate, Eliot did weird dances where he appeared to hump both the ground and the air around him.
On top of the 26-grand, Eliot also ended up winning an 11-night cruise to Tahiti, and a Mitsubishi Mirage.
