Former Washington, DC Mayor Anthony Williams sprang into action Wednesday after witnessing a robbery. Williams ran after and caught a thief who had grabbed a package from a UPS truck.
The UPS driver yelled at the thief after seeing the package being swiped.
Williams was nearby and decided to do what any 57-year-old ex-mayor would do: track the guy down on foot.
"I was saying to myself, 'What am I going to do if I catch him?'," Williams later joked. "What does a dog do when it catches a car?"
When confronted the thief recognized Williams, saying "Oh, you used to be the mayor!".
He then handed over the stolen package and disappeared into the crowd.
Williams attempted to follow the man, but eventually lost him.
