COLLEGE STATION -- A Bryan man led University Police on a chase through Texas A&M's campus late Monday.

Now he's sitting behind bars, thanks to an unlikely bystander.

it started out as a normal night for junior Nelson Ingram. He had just finished Ross volunteer practice and was walking to his car when he heard police chasing after 18-year old Matrix Oliver.

Oliver was running from University Police after allegedly punching his ex-girlfriend in the face twice.

That's when Nelson Ingram, one of A&M's yell leaders and Corps of Cadets member, stepped in to help.

"I started to hear some yelling and I looked over and some people were running on the band field and at second glance I realized the second person was an officer and he was yelling, "Stop, police!" So it kind of took me a second but I decided to just take off and help him catch the assailant."

Nelson chased Matrix through a parking lot, where the suspect then gave up.

Nelson likes to think any other Aggie in his situation would have jumped into action and have done the same.

Matrix Oliver remains in the Brazos County Jail on charges of assault and evading arrest.
