We’re not sure how ‘Payday: The Heist‘ artfully dodged every mandate established by the FCC — but everyone seems to be happy that it did. ‘Payday’ is a game available for the Playstation Network that operates on the following principle: Rob a bank and kill cops, or attempt to rob a bank and get killed by cops. That’s it.
No one knows why you’re knocking off a bank. The concept of a backstory guffaws at ‘Payday: The Heist.’ We don’t know what motivates the deranged murderers in the game, but we do know they’re deranged murderers — and that’s good enough for us.
Fortunately for gamers, self-taught BJJ practitioner Steve Brown is not in Payday: The Heist, otherwise it would be impossible to get past the first level.
Check out this story from Mercury News of a supremely brave guy that ended a five-hour police chase with one well-placed arm bar.
Using a martial arts move he practices in his garage, the president of a San Jose security company Thursday tackled a suspected bank robber, helping bring to an end a chaotic chase that ended up snarling traffic for five hours as technicians examined a suspicious device in the alleged getaway car.
Brown said he was on his way to work and did not have a gun when he tackled the large suspect, who he stopped from commandeering a truck that stopped on the highway. Brown, who said he held the man down with one hand and called police on his cellphone with another, sheepishly agreed he may have been a bit foolhardy.
“It was instinctual,” said the 36-year-old San Jose native who graduated from Santa Teresa High and San Jose State. “I felt they would endanger other lives. … And I thought ‘I have to end it.’ “
Wait, the epicness is not over. Check out this video from ABC 7 News of the entire ordeal.
