(Newser) – Today's celebrity-as-hero story: Taye Diggs thwarted a break-in all by himself last night. Diggs was enjoying a nice quiet evening at home after the SAG Awards when a guy broke in around 11pm. Diggs confronted him, and the man ran off, TMZ reports. But Diggs didn't stop there: He raced after the 20something suspect, then caught and held him until police arrived. Unfortunately, the man's getaway driver reportedly escaped.

hero = a person who makes the ultimate sacrifice for a cause- not a metro- sexual running after someone...all real heroes are dead...please stop disrespecting true heroes.

Crime thwarted without a gun? Must be fiction.

He was lucky one of those two didn't have a gun, but I am glad he kicked Jr.'s butt. :)
