Mikaela Kellner, an off-duty Swedish police officer, was sunbathing with three of her friends at Rålambshov Park in Stockholm, Sweden last Wednesday, July 27.
At some point, Kellner and her friends were approached by a man who was selling newspapers. However, after he left, one of Kellner's friends noticed that her phone was missing.
Kellner and another friend, who was also an off-duty cop, chased the man with the newspapers. Kellner ended up pinning the man to the ground. Sure enough, he had taken her friend's phone.
Somebody managed to take a photo of Kellner's heroic capture of the thief. Kellner then posted the photo on her Instagram page and captioned it with, "My first intervention while wearing a bikini during my 11 years as a police officer."
It's plain to see why the photo went viral.
The Washington Times quotes Kellner as saying, "I just acted on instinct and didn't think about it so much until after we had pinned him down. When I sat there, I looked over at our other two friends who are not police officers and realized that it probably looked pretty funny. But I would have stepped in no matter my outfit."
But, hey, nobody's complaining about this particular bikini shot.
Kellner, by the way, is a power lifter and a former contestant on Swedish Ninja Warrior. That thief didn't know what hit him.
