Shaun Rogers Helps Police Catch Erratic Driver

Shaun Rogers, the Cleveland Browns defensive tackle who has had his fair share of trouble with the police, turned the tables last Thursday night and helped the authorities out.

According to Fox 8 News in Cleveland, Rogers called the police while driving on Interstate 71 in Middleburg Heights and said there was a driver on the road whom he suspected of driving under the influence.

Rogers told the dispatcher that the driver appears "to be either very sleepy or drunk, he's run off the road several times swerving across, they're driving on a flat tire right now."

Rogers followed the vehicle until the erratic driver stopped on the side of the road and turned off his lights. The back end of the car was in the fast lane of the highway. Rogers pulled up behind the car and flashed his emergency lights to warn others on the highway.

Middleburg Heights Police Chief John Maddox said Rogers saved lives that night. Visit Fox 8 for more details.
