"I observed suspect break into a car on campus with a large brick. As I approached the suspect, he ran, and I pursued. Once I was within arms reach, I tackled the suspect to the grass. At that point I maintained side control, transitioned to mount, and armbarred the suspect until his shit BROKE OFF. End report."

Suspended, again.
