Quarterback Joe Montana and Wife Jennifer Wrestled Grandchild Away from Alleged Kidnapper: Report


Retired NFL quarterback Joe Montana and his wife Jennifer Montana reportedly stopped an intruder who carried off one of their grandchildren. This happened Saturday, according to law enforcement sources cited by TMZ.

The suspect, identified as a 39-year-old woman, went through an unlocked door into a home that the couple was staying at. She grabbed an infant, and walked off, but the Montanas stopped her, and wrestled back the baby, according to the report. The suspect ran away, but nearby Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were flagged down. The 39-year-old woman was arrested several blocks away, and charged in a kidnapping and burglary case.

Those who had information on the matter are encouraged to call the LASD’s Malibu/Lost Hills station at (818) 878-1808, according to Q13Fox.

The LASD did not immediately respond to a Law&Crime request for comment.

Montana was known for his 1979 to 1994 NFL career. He was best known as the longtime quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, leading the team to winning four Super Bowls.
