High School Cheerleader Tackles Thief
Cheerleader Tumbles, Cheers, Boosts School Spirit and Catches

An alleged would-be thief is in custody thanks to the efforts of a 16-year-old cheerleader from Moore.

The incident happened Sunday night at Penn Square Mall, police said. Moore High School junior Kealey Oliver was on her cell phone, talking to her mother, when suddenly a man started running toward her.

Oliver acknowledged she was probably acting instinctively, trading her tumbling for bad-guy tackling.

"If I would have thought about it, I probably wouldn't have done it," Oliver said. "I was like, 'Hang on, Mom,' and I like put the phone down. And when he got close to me, I just got in his way and like grabbed him, and he kept trying to run, so I just slammed him on the ground."
