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.

If you read it on digg, then you read it days after it was on other social news sites; digg and kevin rose are garbage.

Shaun Rogers did a good deed. I won't matter to the 'haters' in the world because he was arrested on a weapons charge. He also took his punishment. Leave it alone. No one got hurt but someone might have with the DUI suspect. If the driver decided to run on three tires, who knows what might have happened. Two separate issues. Give it a rest. And no young girl was involved.
