CRESTWOOD, MO (KTVI)– A man stealing bottles of vodka from a Crestwood grocery store probably didn’t imagine a professional kickboxer and mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter would thwart him on his way out the door.

Jesse Finney said he headed to Schnucks in Crestwood around 7 p.m. on Dec. 21 to pick up some chocolate for his pregnant wife. As he neared the basket area, Finney noticed a female employee running after a man.
