A Mesa man reportedly prevented a man from stealing his bike by firing a warning shot in the air and then chasing the would-be thief down and hitting him in the leg with a shotgun, police said.:thumbsup:

The victim's wife reportedly saw the man stealing a bike from their back yard shortly before 3 a.m. Monday and told her husband, who outside with a shotgun, told the man to stop and fired a warning shot.

The man refused to stop, so the victim followed him in his truck. He reportedly pulled in front of the thief, got out of his truck and swung the shotgun, striking him in the leg.

When the victim went back to his truck to call police, the man ran off. Responding officers found the suspect, identified as William Larsen, 48, hiding in a nearby bush by following a blood trail.

Larsen allegedly grabbed and twisted an arresting officer's finger, forcing police to punch him in the shoulder multiple times to get him into handcuffs. Police arrested Larsen on suspicion of burglary, resisting arrest and criminal trespassing.
