When one Texas man spotted a man driving erratically on the road, he immediately called 911. However, when he saw that small children were in danger, he decided there wasn’t enough time to wait for the police arrive.
“I was showing my family around, they were here visiting from Venezuela, when we saw a guy driving like crazy, most probably under the influence in the River Oaks area in Houston, Texas,” Alejandro Fernandez Favreau said. “So we turned around and followed him.”
Alejandro followed the man into the parking lot of a restaurant and told the police their location. However, before they could get there, the man got back in his car and drove off. “We had to follow him again while we were on the phone with 911, he missed many cars and entered the parking lot of Central Market.”
The parking lot was full of people, including children, and Alejandro knew someone was going to get hurt before the cops could get there. “We had to act quick to try to stop the guy before something bad happened, the guy saw me coming and he backed up into another vehicle,” Alejandro explained. He then jumped through an open window, put the car in park and pulled him out of the car with another man’s help before the driver managed to put the car back into gear.
Soon after the cops arrived and determined the 28-year-old was drunk, they charged him with his third DWI. “Many people have criticized how I acted, telling me that I shouldn’t have got involved,” Alejandro explained. “But at that point, I only thought of doing something before someone got hurt. I thought of two really good friends of mine that are now dead, one because he drove while really drunk… and the other one a few years later, died because he got hit by a drunk driver, he was driving his bike and just like that he was gone.”
