Someone get this man a badge and a gun — in fact, you could probably just give him those of the officer he locked up for drunk driving, as he will no longer be needing them.
It's true. Russell George, of Prestbury, watched this cop weave in and out of traffic erratically before taking the law into his own hands.
Here's what happened according to Russell:
“He was driving towards oncoming traffic as he turned into Victoria Road. At this point I was concerned about the safety of other road users. He suddenly jammed on his brakes and came to a complete stop. I got out of my car and went towards him and I asked him if he knew what he was doing. He started his car and carried on driving."
That's when Russell called the sober cops.
“After five minutes, no one had arrived. So I jumped out of my car and I approached the driver’s side and asked him to come out. He looked at me and I could smell that he had been drinking. I asked him again, and he refused. I then grabbed his keys, pulled him out and locked him in the back of his own van.”
We're not saying everyone out there should be jumping at the chance to take down a cop, but we do think a situation like this warrants it FOR SURE. Drunk driving is unbelievably dangerous, and Russell just might have saved a life!
South African citizens are legit!! LOLz!!
