Here Is The Full Statement From Phoenix PD:
On July 24, 2014, at approximately 7:00 p.m., Phoenix Police officers responded to a call of two suspicious males in a neighborhood in the Arcadia Area. As officers were responding to the area, Bryan Danielson and his wife were pulling into their carport when they saw the door that leads to the house from the carport start to open. Two suspects ran out of the house and fled on foot. Mr. Danielson, who was the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion (aka Daniel Bryan), chased the two men.
After some distance, Mr. Danielson was able to catch one of the men, Cesar Sosa. A struggle ensued and Mr. Danielson was able to subdue Sosa and detain him until the police officers could take him into custody. The second suspect was not located. Sosa and his accomplice had broken the rear arcadia door to get into the house to burglarize it. When the burglary was interrupted, they dropped their loot and ran away.
Cesar Sosa was booked into the Maricopa County Jail charged with burglary and he also had a felony warrant for his arrest, charging him with kidnapping and burglary.
