Some guy thought he’d break into Taye Digg’s house and have at it. Turned out Taye “had at” the perpetrator instead.
The couple heard somebody trying to break into their house. Diggs confronted the intruder, Hassan Juma, who ran up the street toward a second man waiting in a parked car. The driver took off before his partner in crime could catch a ride, though. Meanwhile, Diggs caught up with the 20-year-old man, and held him for about 20 minutes until police showed up.
An LAPD spokesman wasn’t sure how 42-year-old Diggs managed to hold the invader. “The suspect tried to run away, but [Diggs] chased him down the street and was able to detain him until police arrived. At this time, I don’t know exactly what he did to the suspect to detain him.”
Diggs is the second Hollywood actor to chase down a home invader. LLCoolJ did the same in August.Sources: http://www.tmz.com/2013/01/28/taye-diggs-home-invasion/ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/28/taye-diggs-home-invasion_n_2566511.html http://www.thedailybeast.com/cheats/2013/01/28/taye-diggs-fights-off-home-invasion.html http://celebrity-gossip.net/legal/taye-diggs-thwarts-home-invasion-798330 http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2013/01/taye-diggs-chase-intruder-studio-city-home.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+lanowblog+(L.A.+Now) http://celebrity-gossip.net/legal/taye-diggs-thwarts-home-invasion-798330
