Delivery drivers are truly one of the backbones of our society. From working in harsh weather conditions, to stopping crimes to help the police, they are always there for us. You might be reading this wondering; how can a delivery driver stop crime? Well, we have the answer.
On Sunday, while working as a delivery driver for Cocco’s Pizza Aston, Tyler Morell had a bit more than a delivery tip coming his way. Morell, who was actively serving our community by delivering pizza, delivered a taste of justice to go along with it.
The video that has viral shows Morell at the doorstep of customer Danielle Yeager’s home in Brookhaven. While delivering a Cocco’s pizza, a Kia is seen in the background driving up onto the grass on the opposite side of the road with police cars swiftly following in pursuit. Morell then walks down the entrance of the customer’s home, pizza still in hand, as the driver of the vehicle tries to flee the police. The driver of the vehicle runs in front of Morell, and Morell swiftly trips the person all the while the pizza stays perfectly level in his hand.
The pizza was perfectly safe, and the police were able to catch the driver they were after. Danielle Yeager told 6ABC that it was a “10/10” delivery. After Yeager’s security doorbell caught the video, it was posted to Facebook by Cocco’s Pizza in Aston, with the caption, “Sorry for the inappropriate language, but we thought it was warranted. Special shoutout to our delivery driver Tyler, who assisted the Brookhaven police today, and STILL delivered the food unharmed!!”

While Preston and Steve talked about Morell’s heroic act on Monday morning’s show, they received a call from Morell himself. Morell called into the show to talk about the experience first-hand, saying he was trying to keep a firm grasp on a bag of Mozzarella sticks and pizza when he heard the sirens coming behind him.
Morell’s first reaction was not about the police chase itself, but rather his new car that he recently bought which unfortunately had a flat tire. He, like many car owners, watched on in fear that more damage could happen to his car. After tripping the thief, he let out a solid f-bomb to the guy, stating on the show that it came out naturally.

At the end of the day, he was just happy he didn’t spill anything. Customers around the area are now specifically requesting Tyler for their pizza delivery needs. This Delco legend is one we will never forget.
It did not take long for Morell to receive the recognition he deserved. From Barstool Sports to news stations across the country, Morell became the Batman other counties could only dream of having. Always remember to tip your delivery drivers, you never know what type of crime they might be stopping in your area.
