    Texas woman chases down thief

    Wed Mar 4, 2:42 pm ET

    FORT WORTH, Texas Unholstering her cell phone from her bra, a tough-talking Texas woman chased down a purse snatcher in her car while calling 911. "Put it on the hood, now!" Val Renfro is heard yelling on the 911 recording after she got her man. "You give me my purse, right now."


    Renfro, 65, from Arlington, had finished shopping Sunday at a Fort Worth office supply store and was getting into her car when a man shoved her twice, grabbed her purse and ran, according to a police report.


    That's when she reached for her phone, which she always keeps tucked into her bra, and called 911.


    While talking to the operator, Renfro drove after the fleeing man.
    At one point, she apparently nudges the man with her car. The man tells her if she rolls down her window, he'll return the purse. "Like hell I will," she yells.


    Onlookers eventually cornered the man near a movie theater.
    Renfro said she later ran into the suspect at the police station, where he apologized to her. She said she accepted his apology.


    "I don't have any animosity toward him," Renfro said. "Who am I to be the judge of him?"
    Police identified the suspect as Ricky Lee Sample, 47. He remained in the Tarrant County Jail on Wednesday on a charge of aggravated robbery as well as a parole violation. His bail was set at $20,000.

    Mr. Sample might want to consider a career change.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    haha, in the bay area she would have been charged with ADW for nudging him with the car. I think she should be given a standing ovation.
