Tom Hardy might have saved the streets of London from one criminal, but he might also have just inadvertantly spawned a crime wave.
The Sun first reported that the star of Taboo and CBeebies’ Bedtime Stories chased down a moped thief in Richmond, jumping over a wall, through gardens and a building site before grabbing them and making a citizens’ arrest.
He even reportedly frisked the suspect for weapons and checked their ID. All very heroic.
The problem now is that plenty of men and women are now debating whether to turn to a life of crime – if it means being wrestled to the floor by Tom Hardy.
#TomHardy makes me want to turn to a life of crime. Chase me Tom!

As Jake Humphrey says, if nothing else it will make a hell of a Bedtime Story….
