This is refreshing news.

We are tired of hearing about celebrity actors and athletes being arrested for drunk driving so I am glad that there are people like Cleveland Browns linesman Shaun Rogers who acted exactly the opposite.

Rogers is being hailed as a hero by Middleburg Heights police after helping apprehend a drunk driver who was moving erratically along Interstate 71 last July 15.

According to authorities, Rogers called 911 to report that he was following a car that has a blown tire but still continuous to move maniacally along the freeway.

After giving directions to authorities, Rogers continued to follow the car until it came to a stop in the middle of traffic.

He then pulled up his car behind the other vehicle and activated his emergency lights to alert other vehicles of their presence and avoid vehicle accidents.

The other driver was then arrested after getting a very high BAC on a breath test.

The NFL star was sent a public letter commending him abut his courage and presence of mind.

And rightfully so!!

His actions, though not grand, showed a high sense of responsibility.

You could say that he saved lives that day because it’s just a matter of time before the other driver hit something or someone by the way he is driving if he was not stopped.

Last, he also saved that drunk driver’s life.

Either he could have died in a DUI car accident or he could have ended up behind bars for decades due to vehicular manslaughter.

Shaun Rogers just saved him from that fate, now it is up to him to follow through.
