Ethan Miller/Getty Images(LONDON) — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson turned into a real life action hero while filming The Fast and Furious 6 in London and chased down a gang of teenagers trying to break into several vans, The Sun reports.

The British tabloid says The Rock was dressed as an FBI agent, complete with bullet proof vest, and was in the midst of filming a scene in a warehouse in East London when he spotted the teens trying to force open several locked vans.  A source says The Rock stopped the scene and chased after the teens while flashing his fake FBI badge. The teens fled empty-handed.

The Rock declined to comment on the incident, tweeting, “I plead the 5.”
