It’s either horrible luck or the greatest story in a petty criminal’s life: you manage to swipe a motorbike, only to be run down by a marauding Mad Max.

Actor Tom Hardly apprehended a teen thief who crashed a stolen motorbike in South London traffic, The Sun reports.

According to witnesses, the actor sprinted after the boy after he attempted to flee the scene.

“It was mental – like he’d switched to superhero mode in an action movie,” a witness told The Sun.

“Two boys on the nicked moped had jumped a red light and smashed into a car.

“Tom must have been walking down the road. He went off like a shot in pursuit and looked furious.

“I asked Tom what happened and he told me he chased him through my back garden and caught him around the block,” the witness said, adding that Hardy proudly pronounced “I caught the c—.”

“Tom Hardy’s clearly not a man you mess with. I think he even checked the kid’s ID before cops took over,” the witness said.

In what sounds like a scene from one of his films, The Sun said the star “vaulted walls as he sprinted after the crook – then grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and patted him down for concealed weapons.”

Scotland Yard police later confirmed the report, saying two 16-year-old males ran off and “one was detained by Tom Hardy”, although the actor’s spokesperson declined to comment, said BBC News.

Hardy, 39, who recently co-created and starred in the BBC period drama Taboo, will next be seen in Dunkirk, the upcoming WWII epic from his Dark Knight Rises and Inception director Christopher Nolan.
