You can run from Taye Diggs, but you can't hide

(TMZ) - Some actors play super heroes on the screen, but Taye Diggs really is one, single-handedly apprehending a guy who tried to break into his L.A. home last night, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Diggs was at his home last night when a man broke into his home shortly after 11:00 PM. Diggs, who was at the SAG Awards earlier in the evening, confronted the suspect, who then took off running. 

According to TMZ, Diggs then actually chased after the guy and eventually caught up to him and held the man until cops arrived. 

TMZ reports that there was a getaway driver, but he got away.
