Charles Tillman saves Laura Okmin from being run over

By Sid Saraf,

Bears defensive back Charles “Peanut” Tillman put all of his skills to use in one shining moment on Sunday afternoon. Tillman was on the sideline when he turned around and saw FOX reporter Laura Okmin standing in the path of an oncoming camera. That could have been ugly.

Going on instinct, Tillman reached out and pulled Laura away just in the nick of time. Nice hands, Peanut!

We here at Laces Out salute you for your quick thinking. As you can tell from the GIF, Laura was very grateful for the helping hand.
