Doorbell camera video captured the moment a pizza delivery man helped stop a suspect running from the police. Here’s the full story. A Brookhaven homeowner shared footage from his Ring camera when Tytler Morrell, a Cocco’s Pizzeria delivery man, tripped a suspect who was running from police, Fox 29 reported. Reporters asked Morrell what gave him the courage to step in and help, he further said that he never thought about doing anything but stepping in. He added that he was raised to step up for something that is not right, he just did his part. The video shows police cruisers stopping in front of the house Morrell was delivering the pizza to when the suspect got out of the vehicle and began to run. Morrell stuck out his foot to trip the suspect.
Pizza Delivery Driver Trips Suspect
The suspect hit the ground and Brookhaven police officers made the arrest. That stuck-out leg was enough to trip the suspect, causing him to tumble to the ground, where police arrested him. The incident was caught on the customer’s security video. Police claimed that they also arrested 19-year-old Jhonael Gutirrez-Tejada, who was allegedly a passenger in the stolen car. After all the commotion was done, Morell still managed to get the pizza delivered safely. The person who ordered the pizza remarked him 10 on 10!
Reportedly, Tejada is facing charges of receiving stolen property, resisting arrest, and other charges. He’s being held behind bars on $50,000 bail. The 17-year-old suspect is also facing charges. Thank you for being a patient reader.

Great job for the pizza guy. But I only hope he won't get lawsuits from the criminal or the criminal's family 😅

If it's a democrat area, the pizza guy'd be charged with assault after being thanked by the police. 😢pic.twitter.com/jDpBywib8i

I'm glad the delivery guy did that, but I'm worried the perp's attorney will write up papers for the perp to sue the delivery guy for assault. Hope not, but with today's lawyers, meh.

Depending on the state this occurred in the pizza guy could get sued, sadly
