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.

President Donald Trump announced in December that he would withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria, but Sen. Lindsey Graham has since made a strong push to keep a small residual force along the Turkish border along with troops from European allies.

The former Navy SEAL among a group of eight men arrested earlier this week in Port-au-Prince on weapons charges says he was providing security work "for people who are directly connected to the current President" of Haiti.

"We were being used as pawns in a public fight between him and the current Prime Minister of Haiti," said Chris Osman, 44, in a post on Instagram Friday. "We were not released we were in fact rescued."

It's a photo for the ages: a Marine NCO, a Greek god in his dress blues, catches the eye of a lovely young woman as her boyfriend urges her on in distress. It's the photographic ancestor of the much-loved "distracted boyfriend" stock photo meme, made even sweeter by the fact that this is clearly a sailor about to lose his girl to a Devil Dog.

Well, this photo and the Marine in it, which hopscotched around Marine Corps Facebook and Instagram pages before skyrocketing to the front page of Reddit on Thursday, are very real.

The photo shows then-Staff Sgt. Louis A. Capozzoli — and he is absolutely not on his way to steal your girl.
