I witnessed the whole thing and all I can say is it was amazing to watch this hero stop someone twice his size. I'm glad the guy is behind bars because there is no telling who's house he may have broke into and took their Christmas. Thank you whom ever you were!

This is Eric Smothers. I don't know who "Nail Bitter" is but as for me telling you that was my brother that is not a true statement (especially since your post was from Monday and I hadn't mentioned anything about this to anyone except my family until today). My brother would have much rather remained anonymous... However, I will say this,... this world needs more people that are willing to stand up and do what is right instead of looking the other way or not wanting to get involved. I am proud to say that my brother is and always has been that type of person. And as for the David and Goliath comment, THAT part of your post is true. He may not be very tall but he has a big heart and dynamite comes in small packages....

If the person was apprehended in the store, what makes you so sure it was a shoplifter? Sometimes, people just look guilty and if he didn't walk out with it, then he wasn't stealing. I've seen people reported and checked that had nothing on them.

RUNNING for the door with merchandise tucked in his coat is a no brainier as far as guilt. The surveillance shows it all from start to finish. I understand he also faces assault charges because of the Walmart employee he knocked down to make his sprint. The gentleman that stopped him should be commended. Hats off to you Sir!
