MIAMI (AP) - An unlikely group helped a photographer for The Miami Herald get his camera back after it was stolen.
Al Diaz was preparing to photograph the Taqueria Mexicana Orale taco truck Wednesday when a man on inline skates sped by and grabbed a camera Diaz had momentarily set on a chair.
The taco truck's owner, Moises Gonzales, and a food inspector ran after the suspect on foot. Gonzales flagged down a van, driven by Miami-Dade Judge Deborah White-Labora, and continued the chase.
When the van caught up with the suspect, White-Labora's teenage son jumped out and tackled the man. Gonzales soon joined the fray.
Not knowing what to make of the brawl, resident Ian Vaquero pulled a gun on the entire group and called police.
James Dewey Bretthauer was arrested and charged with theft.
