AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Austin police say a man who saw a person jump into a pizza delivery driver’s vehicle left running outside the restaurant faces a manslaughter charge in the alleged thief’s death after giving chase.

Police tell the Austin American-Statesman (https://bit.ly/1uFfRUy ) that 32-year-old Joseph Mobley was at a Domino’s Pizza Monday night when he saw the vehicle being taken and gave chase in his own vehicle, with his family as passengers. When the alleged thief abandoned the vehicle, Mobley chased him on foot and a violent confrontation ensued.

An autopsy ruled the death a homicide, but police wouldn’t give details other than to say no weapons were believed to be involved.

Mobley was being held Wednesday in Travis County Jail with bail set at $60,000. Jail records did not list an attorney.
