Daniel Bryan stops burglar in Phoenix, Arizona


A professional wrestler chased down a man who allegedly broke into his Phoenix home Thursday evening.

Police said a second suspect got away.

Phoenix police officers were responding to a call of two suspicious males in an Arcadia neighborhood as Bryan Danielson was confronting two alleged burglars.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Danielson, whose ring name is Daniel Bryan, and his wife were pulling into their carport when they saw the door that leads to the house start to open. Two males then ran out of the home and fled on foot.

The former WWE world heavyweight champion chased the two suspects. He caught up to one of them and a struggle ensued. Danielson was able to subdue the suspect and detain him until police officers could take him into custody.

The second suspect described only as a Hispanic male has not been located.

Police said Cesar Sosa, 22, and his accomplice broke the rear sliding glass door to get into the house to burglarize it.

“When the burglary was interrupted, they dropped their loot and ran away,” Thompson said.

Sosa was booked into the Maricopa County Jail and faces burglary charges. He also had a felony warrant for his arrest, charging him with kidnapping and burglary.
