A Colorado woman had just finished reporting her car stolen to police when it literally crossed her path. Alex Walden had her black Jetta stolen early Saturday morning a few blocks from the University of Colorado in Boulder. It came back quickly. The man driving her car stopped at a crosswalk to allow her and her boyfriend, Ryan Tippetts, to cross the street.

Driving the stolen car was Davien Payne, a former running back who had been kicked off the University of Colorado football team last year. When the pair recognized the car as Walden's she tried opening the door. Payne hit the gas, but not before Tippetts was able to dive into the passenger side window. Through Payne's girlfriend's screaming and a flurry of blows to his head and neck, Tippetts was able to eventually get Payne to stop the car. Payne fled from the vehicle, and was found by police hiding in an alley nearby.

ABC 7 News in Denver reported Tippetts walked away from the struggle with a black eye and a broken larynx that required surgery and four titanium plates. Payne was charged with aggravated motor vehicle theft, second-degree assault, resisting arrest, obstruction of a peace officer and trespassing.
