The pizza delivery man put an end to a high-speed chase by causing the suspect who was running away from the police to trip.

A pizza delivery man stopped a fleeing suspect in a police chase by sticking his foot out to trip him.

Tyler Morell was still holding a pizza when he successfully tripped a man running from the police.
The Pennsylvania police department hailed Morell as a hero, saying he "saved the day," WPVI reported. A pizza delivery man offered some free service to Pennsylvania officers earlier this week by tripping a suspect they were chasing.
Tyler Morrell realized he was in the middle of a police chase while making pizza deliveries for Cocco's Pizza on Sunday afternoon, WPVI-TV reported.

"A car just came up doing like 75," Morrell told the outlet. "He beached on the side of this person's lawn and almost took out a couple of cars."

The Brookhaven Police Department said they were in pursuit of a stolen Kia at about 3:30 pm when the car, driven by a 17-year-old suspect, crashed on Preston Street in Middletown Township, according to WPVI.

Video from a doorbell camera shows Morrell walking from the door of a home where he was making a delivery back towards the street just as the suspect abandoned his vehicle and started to flee on foot.

"I started walking towards the road, but I couldn't do anything with my hands because I'm holding the pizza, so I just stuck my leg out," Morrell said.

The suspect tripped and fell, allowing police to catch up and apprehend him.

"He gave us the help we needed, by tripping him it gave us the time to catch up with the gentleman," Brookhaven Chief of Police Michael Vice said, per WPVI. "In this case, this guy ultimately saved the day."

In addition to the minor suspect, police said they also arrested a 19-year-old, who authorities allege to be the passenger in the stolen car, per WPVI.

"I am so sick of seeing crime go on, especially half a mile down the road," Morell told WPVI. "So if they needed a hand or a foot, I was there."

Morell was hailed as a hero by police and still managed to deliver the pizza to customer Danielle Yeager, who said it was a "10 out of 10 delivery," WPVI reported.
