Dramatic 911 Tape -- NFL Star Helps Nab DUI Suspect

7/22/2010 3:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the recording of a dramatic 911 call made by Cleveland Browns lineman Shaun Rogers ... in which he helps local police safely arrest an allegedly super-drunk driver who was driving like a maniac.

Rogers made the call around 11:08 PM on July 15 -- warning that he was following a car that was swerving all over Interstate 71 ... and had blown a tire after smashing into the center divider.

During the call, Rogers directs law enforcement to his exact location -- and when the perp's car came to a stop in the middle of traffic, Rogers pulled up behind the other ride and activated his emergency lights to prevent a collision.

The suspect was eventually arrested on suspicion of DUI after blowing "extremely high" on a breath test.

Rogers was hailed as a hero by the local chief of police -- who sent the NFL star this letter to show his appreciation.

MightyMad, You sound like victim of hitler's propaganda..LMAO
Look , if TMZ wants to find positive images and good role models in the NFL/NBA and rest , they could--But then how are they going to prey on your pre-concieved notions. What fun is that..

I was shocked when i saw this report- TMZ is the business of making esp. black people esp. bad , so kudos for a little change.
but am not going to hold my breath..lol--Now , back to defending Mel Gibson--JEEZ , tmz , thats why i prefer radaronline--they are killing you guys (with details)-they are not into tribalism--they call it as they see it.

We appreciate that you guys report the things that Main Stream Media tries to "COVER-UP" for Celebs, Politician and Other high/low profile individuals. You guys are doing a GREAT JOB.

As for the post, It was G-R-E-A-T!!! to hear of Shaun Rogers-NFL player's GENUINE Good Deed.


Thank You to TMZ for Reporting it and Shaun for doing it.


***side note*** TMZ because you guys report a great deal of negative (although Appreciated) the Site can have a negative vibe as well. This helped Me, Thank you.
