You know of NBC's Chris Hansen and his "To Catch A Predator" reports where child predators are lured into police stings. An Indiana man got arrested for attempting something similar.

Police say Adam Blazak of Kokomo posed as 14-year-old girl on the internet and enticed a 19-year-old man to a Seattle motel. Once there, investigators say Blazak pinned and handcuffed the suspect.

But that's where his good deed turned bad - because authorities say Blazak claimed to be a federal agent and accepted money in exchange for freeing the man. That suspect told police, who arrested both men.
