A Planet Hollywood door supervisor tackled the driver who plowed into pedestrians in Times Square Thursday and helped hold him, he told ABC News.
Kenya Bradix, 47, said he saw a car driving the wrong direction on 7th Avenue between 44th and 45th Streets, and then saw it crash.
The driver of the car, identified by police as Richard Rojas, 26, of the Bronx, was screaming and flailing as he got out of the car after hitting multiple people, Bradix said.
Then, a traffic agent told Bradix to "get him," he said.
"I ran toward him and tackled him down," Bradix said, adding that he was assisted by an off-duty police officer and two passers-by.

How to Monitor EPA Regulations for Farms including New Laws and Farming Regulation
http://www.changedetect.com/ Option 1 Join the Ag Center's News Service https://www.epa.gov/agriculture/agriculture-join-ag-centers-news-service
But you will only receive news alerts every other week And while it is good that the EPA set up this alert service, it is very basic and not at all customizable. Now if you subscribe to the Ag Center alerts (and we recommed that you do), you will receive alerts on what the EPA refers to a "variety of topics".
This means that you will receive alerts on, for example, "animal waste management" when your ag business may not produce or need to manage animal waste.
The AG Center's News Service is a blunt instrument. What you really need is a sharp tool.
Option 2 Implement the solution to target your AG center alerts to only only the issues that matter to you.
