As a Kansas State defensive back earlier this decade, Kip Daily's duties were to chase and lock down receivers. Now, as a police officer, he has to chase and lock up criminals.

Daily did just that yesterday. An officer with the Carrollton (Tex.) Police Department, Daily chased down a purse snatcher and made the collar.

"We're glad he's on our team now," the Carrollton PD Facebook post read.

Daily played two seasons at Kansas State. He redshirted in 2011 after transferring from junior college before seeing the field for the Wildcats in 2012 and 2013.

In Daily's final year (2013), he recorded 48 total tackles and a pair of interceptions. He returned one of them for a touchdown against UMass.

Daily also ran back a blocked kick for a score against Oklahoma State that season. He clearly has some wheels in the open field.

That criminal yesterday found that out the hard way. Now, he's paying the price.

Well done, Officer Daily.
