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.

@Rob It's a positive story. Who knows what could have happened had these under age idiots have gotten away with it. So keep your negative link to yourself. This story is not about his mistake it's about another person mistake. So leave his mistakes out of it. How would you like it if every time you did something helpful someone brought up your mistakes?

Hey MightMad and RyogaVee, you are both DOUCHE BAGS!!!! Stop bringing down the vibe of the story. Shaun Rogers did a good thing and he was commended for it. The April gun situation was a mistake. You downers who like to hate on people really make me sick.

In January 2006, I lost my in-laws to a drunk driver who crashed into them doing at least 120mph which resulted in their car being split in two. Mr. Rogers should be commended for his actions. There is no doubt he saved at least one life that evening. An innocent family was spared the knock on the door by law enforcement notifying them of a death of a loved one. We all need to be observant and proactive to keep these reckless individuals off the roads.
