Australian detective interrupts his own press conference to rugby tackle refugee suspects
An Australian detective is praised for his rugby skills after he has suddenly stopped a press conference to deal with a man who fled after allegedly making inappropriate comments to a young girl.
Detective leader Sergeant Daren Edwards talked to reporters outside the Maroochydore Magistrates Court in Queensland, Thursday, when shouts rang behind him.
"Run!" A man can be heard in the actors from Reuters, as another flies behind Edwards.

Fast thinking Edwards turned around, dropped his shoulder and took the suspect down to what many called a textbook.
Detective Senior Sergeant Daren Edwards ended a press conference to address a fugitive man.
"He has been unsuitable for my daughter," the man who chased the suspect said.
The man, who has not yet been identified by the police, was arrested and detained by the police. 19659003] NEAR-NAKED AUSTRALIAN MAN STOPS INTRUDER BY WIELDING DIDGERIDOO
"Seeing it is just one of the things you know," Edwards told reporters with a visible wound in the head after taking it.  "Of course, the man had just been released and a young woman walking down the street had views on her being handed over to her father, who obviously provoked her father."
The suspect allegedly made inappropriate comments to the man's daughter.
