Farris said he helped identify the man as the person he saw run from the scene.
“I just hope she presses charges and that was the right guy,” he said.
Since the original reports of his role in the arrest, Farris’ friends and family have expressed thankful support through social media. Farris, owner of three Mattress King stores in the state, said he just did what anyone else would have if put in a similar situation.
“I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal,” Farris said. “I just ran after the dude.”
