Car Jacking Suspect Apprehended by Commander McCoy

For those of you who missed yesterday's article in the Post, our very own Commander McCoy apprehended a suspect in the recent spate of robberies and car jackings. From the article:

Cmdr. Larry McCoy was doing paperwork in his cruiser when he saw the tan Chevrolet TrailBlazer pull into the parking lot at Lamont Street and Georgia Avenue. McCoy said he apprehended the driver as he was trying to rip a stereo out of the back of the SUV. The man was apparently going to try to sell the speaker at the pawn shop.

Thank you Commander McCoy!!!!

I am picturing Commander McCoy as T.J. Hooker (William Shatner) pulling out his police baton and throwing it at the fleeing criminal's legs to take him down (this scene was shown in T.J. Hooker's opening credits segment every week). Please say this is how it went down!?!

Oh, and I thought about what McCoy said to him (T.J. Hooker style): "I've got a nice, dark cell for you to sit in, while you think long and hard."

Unfortunately for you television fans, it was not as choreographed as TJ Hooker. Remember, they have stunt men. As for the Commander's arrest, it was an example of being in the right place at the right time. The suspect actually tried to flee the scene when he realized that the commander was approaching him, but he put the wrong key into the ignition and could not start it. Allegedly, the key that he was trying to use belonged to another vehicle that had been carjacked during the 2 hour spree the day before.

Wasn't there a Doctor McCoy on that Star Trek series with Shatner? I mean come on, who are we kidding, it was meant to be.
