Father-daughter days out don't always go as planned, but they probably don't typically end like Army Staff Sgt. Sean Olivia's.


Olivia — who joined the Army in 2005 and was deployed twice to Afghanistan and Iraq before becoming a recruiter for the Minneapolis Recruiting Company — was shopping with his daughter when four men stole merchandise from an Apple Store, according to Minneapolis affiliate Fox 9.

He "chased down the suspects while pushing his daughter in a stroller" before handing the child off to a bystander and continuing his pursuit, Fox 9 reports.

The suspects drove away, but Olivia captured photos of them and their license plate, and pointed an Edina Police Department officer who was on-site in their direction. The suspects then fled police, Fox 9 reports, but were ultimately stopped and arrested.

There's no word yet if the 10-month-old plans to pursue a career of pursuing criminals.

As UCF research associate Shane Reynolds guides his avatar over a virtual minefield using his iPad, small beeps and whistles reveal the location of the scourge of the modern war zone: Improvised Explosive Devices, or IEDs. He must take his time to sweep every last inch of the playing field to make sure his character doesn't miss any of the often-deadly bombs.

Despite his slow pace, Reynolds makes a small misstep and with a kaboom! a bomb blows up his player, graphically scattering body parts.
