A bad-ass Oklahoma man tied up a burglar that he caught in his home, then left the criminal in his yard for police to deal with. He didn't wait for them to arrive because the entire ordeal had made him late for work. Best. Employee. Ever.

Early yesterday morning, the man and his pregnant wife heard glass breaking in their daughter's room followed by more strange noise in the garage. Like a trained soldier, he waited for the burglar to pass their front door and tackled him, pinning his hands and feet behind his back.

After dialing 911, the man informed his wife that he was heading off to work and instructed her to watch over the criminal until authorities arrived. His wife, Denay Houston, described him as "a super-hero."

"That's just the type of person he is, you know? That's just the type of person he is. Business is business. 'I got to take care of business, he's safe, the police are coming, I got to go,'" she added. The crook, identified as Robert Cole, was arrested and charged with first-degree burglary. This public shaming should send him on the straight-and-narrow.
