I've chased enough thieves on foot to know that 95% or them usually drop what they took within 20 yards, especially if it is heavy or awkward to run with. If it looks like I can still catch them, I may keep going. Done it before. Misdemeanor charge if they don't escalate it, I show up to court long enough to hear them plead guilty or plea, if it even goes that far.
Yeah, there's a risk it might turn really ugly, and another risk after that, that I may end up getting charged.
That [it turned really ugly] means that the BG did present a clear and present threat to my physical well being - READ - JAM was met in full and then some, and I had no other options. In CO that will go a looooong way in my defense.

Court decided it was a good shoot, but I am not sure I would go out. Granted not his car, a neighbors. There had been a string of vehicle robberies in the area.

Finocchio (Prosecutor) pushed Scott (Defendant) on why he sought to detain the people he saw going through cars.
"That's not your job, is it?" Finocchio asked.
"Yes," he replied.
"That is your job?" she asked again.
"As a citizen," he replied, "it's all our jobs."
