The internet is abuzz amid news that actor Tom Hardy chased down and apprehended a thief who stole a moped in London on April 24.

Hardy — known for his role as Twombly in “Black Hawk Down,” and who will have starring roles in “Dunkirk” and Navy SEAL TV series “War Party” — was apparently walking around the South London neighborhood of Richmond when two young men on the stolen moped ran a red light and crashed. One fled, and Hardy went after them.

“The Legend, Batman and Taboo star vaulted walls as he sprinted after the crook — then grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and patted him down for concealed weapons,” the Sun reports.

Can you imagine being a dumb punk and seeing the guy who played Bane bearing down on you? I’d give up my life of crime immediately.

A witness told the Sun, “It was mental – like he’d switched to superhero mode in an action movie. Two boys on the nicked moped had jumped a red light and smashed into a car.”

When Hardy caught the crook, he reportedly “grabbed him by the scruff of the neck” and patted him down and searched him for weapons.

After justice was served, Hardy was heard boasting, “I caught the cock,” because that’s exactly what a badass British action hero would say in that scenario.
