MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Mid-South man faces charges while trying to stop an alleged crime in progress outside The Pancake Shop.
According to police, Bobby Freeze, 51, was charged with attempted second-degree murder and a felony firearm charge.
Freeze was inside The Pancake Shop on Summer Avenue Monday when police said he saw a man allegedly stealing tools from his truck. Freeze ran outside and confronted the other man with his gun, as the other man tried to drive away.
