He still knows how to tackle

Thursday, August 16, 2012

John Daiker doesn't play football anymore, but he still knows how to tackle.

The former college lineman sacked a robbery suspect outside a Minnesota convenience store.

Daiker was getting gas the other night.

He says he saw a teenager who was "obviously up to no good."

The 38-year-old Daiker says when he saw the teen had a gun, he tackled him and then got him in a headlock until police arrived.

Daiker is 6-3 and weighs 270.

He tells the Star Tribune plowing into the suspect felt "pretty good," like getting to the quarterback.
