Florida State junior Nick Waisome is already proving himself as a rising talent at corner. And while he has just 22 career tackles and is not quite deserving the status of "lock down corner," Waisome has already helped lock up a few thieves. Waisome returned to his Tallahassee apartment on the morning of July 5, and confronted two burglars. According to a Tallahassee Police Department report, Waisome tried to initially avoid a confrontation and exited out the front door. But he then moved from defense to offense, running around into the backyard. Waisome and one of the suspects, Mario Crawford, fought and the defensive back knocked Crawford to the ground. So Waisome then went to the front of the apartment to pursue the other suspect, Tavares Rumph. Waisome ran him down, making sure that Rumph was not able to escape by jumping into a friend's car. The car, which Waisome thought was a gold Chevy Impala, left the complex in reverse so that Waisome could not see the license plate. TPD arrested Rumph, but Crawford had gotten away. For the moment. On July 23, Waisome was at a nearby gas station and saw what he thought was the Impala. He wrote down the tag and later saw Crawford leaving the gas station wearing camo shorts that Waisome thought were his. Waisome went back to his apartment and saw that his camo shorts were missing and had likely been taken in the robbery. He turned over the license plate information to TPD, which linked the Impala to Crawford's girlfriend. Crawford was arrested on Friday and faces multiple charges. The suspects allegedly stole two guns and about 5,000 in computers, TVs and electronic equipment.
