Yi Hah!

“I rodeo,” says Jeremy Penny, of Tulsa, Okla. “We both rodeo,” he said, referring to his father. Penny, his brother, and his father were baling hay when Penny noticed a man nearby. “Saw the guy walking,” he said, “but didn’t pay him any mind. Then I looked back and I saw him taking off in my car.” Penny and his father took off after the man, and caught a ride from another driver. “I was really mad when I drove up next to him and he was changing my radio station,” Penny said. When the thief got stuck in traffic, Penny, who is 6 feet 5 inches tall and 240 pounds, jumped out and “yanked him” out of his car. “Lately, I’ve been having bad luck keeping calves tied” during rodeos, Penny admitted, so his father “did the tying up. That way we made sure he stayed tied.” They “suspended him” from a fence while waiting for police. Kalvin Hulvey, 35, was booked on a charge of larceny of a motor vehicle. (RC/KOTV Tulsa) ...Good thing the cops got there quick: Hulvey wouldn’t have liked the brand they wanted to put on his hip.
