A police take-down in Sacramento, California would make any NFL football player proud.

It all started when a 19-year-old man allegedly committed a crime at a nearby train station -- and ran away from a police officer.

Officers set up a perimeter and a news crew camera was rolling.

The suspect hopped over the front fence of a home, grabbed a bicycle and started riding.

As the camera rolled, the man pedaled toward a TV photojournalist.

But then a police officer came out of nowhere with a very impressive flying tackle.

A bystander and several more officers joined in and helped subdue the man.

The officer who tackled him ended up with a face wound.

And an officer involved earlier in the chase hurt his hand trying to climb a fence.

It's not clear what charges the suspect faces.
