Is the Sacramento Police Department recruiting ex-NFL players these days? A recent suspect tackle might lead you to believe they are.

It all started when a 19-year-old man allegedly committed a crime at a train station and ran away from a police officer, CNN reports.

Officers set up a perimeter and a news crew had their camera rolling as the suspect hopped a fence of a home, grabbed a bicycle and started riding.

The man pedaled toward the news crew. Just in time, an officer came out of nowhere with an impressive flying tackle.

More officers and a couple of bystanders joined in to help detain the man. It's not clear what charges he faces.
