Driver helps police capture suspected drunk driver

- A motorist who lost a loved one to drunk driving helped get a driver suspected of being intoxicated off the road.

Jonathan Chumley began filming when he noticed a driver driving erratically along the roadway. He then called 911.

His mother was killed by a drunk driver.

"My mother was killed in a car accident in 2008 by a drunk driver and someone who was under the influence of also a controlled substance, and t-boned her at over a hundred mile per hour and killed her instantly," Chumley said. "So I take this very seriously when I see stuff like that. I'm just happy I was able to get him off the road and maybe save either his life or other people's."

Troopers took Gilbert Mendoza into custody. He faces DWI charges.
