An Australian detective didn't have time for further questions when he suddenly stopped a press conference to go full-linebacker on a man sprinting past him.

Senior sergeant Daren Edwards acted quickly when a suspicious man began yelling and running from an irate father.

Watch the dramatic confrontation below:

The sprinter allegedly made inappropriate remarks to the daughter of the man chasing him. Police subdued and handcuffed the screaming runner who had the brilliant idea to tell officers he'd just come from court.

Edwards told reporters at the end of the press conference that the man—who later showed up to call the police corrupt—was arrested for public nuisance. "You can have your day in court," Edwards told him.

People were impressed at Edwards's skills and reflexes.

People began spectating that Edwards was an athlete in his day.

As for the culprit, it's likely he'll be more attentive to who's ahead of him than behind him the next time he's running from someone.

This earlier court ruling was the basis of Effie Krokos' argument when she was ticketed—months after the decision—for being topless in her fiancé's front yard in Loveland, Colorado.

Most of the time, dress codes are there for a reason. Sure, there are the unfair instances of "no spaghetti straps at school" and "no jeans at the office". But at the same time, there are certain work environments that don't call for inappropriate wear. And when you go in for that first interview, you've got to leave a good impression.
