Taye Diggs Takes Down Burglar Who Broke Into His Home
Taye Diggs is a Real Life Hero
Sunday night was an evening full of Hollywood glamour and downright fear for actor Taye Diggs.
The 42 year-old actor and his wife, Tony-Award winning actress Idina Menzel, were on hand at the glitzy SAG awards Sunday night. The "Private Practice" hunk was in the house to award the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series trophy. (Claire Danes work on "Homeland" beat out "Downton Abbey's" Michelle Dockery and Dame Maggie Smith, "American Horror Story's" Jessica Lange and "The Good Wife's" Julianna Margulies.)
Following post-show festivities, about which Diggs Tweeted, "Dee felt bloated, but I had a blast. My favorite part is the dance party afterwards. DJ Paesche kills it and everyone's on the dance floor," the beautiful couple went home.
As they entered the house at roughly 11pm, Diggs realized that someone had been trying to break in. According to TMZ, Diggs confronted the man who then ran away. End of story, right? Not as far as Diggs was concerned. The actor gave chase and caught the would be burglar as his getaway car fleed the scene. Diggs was able to restrain the guy until law enforcement officials got to the scene.
Happily, no harm had come to their 3 year-old son Walker, and everyone went to bed safe and sound.
