Dramatic Video: Deputy Saves Suspected Drunk Driver by Pushing Him Out of Path of Oncoming Car

An Illinois sheriff’s deputy saved his colleagues and a suspected drunk driver from another alleged drunk driver who nearly hit them on the side of a highway, Inside Edition reports.

Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy Charles Schutz was recorded on dash cam video along with other officers and a man suspected of driving while intoxicated when a car came speeding toward hem.

Schutz was watching the road while his colleagues dealt with the suspect.

“You have to keep your head on a swivel,” he told WIFR. “You’re looking out for everybody.”

Dash cam video shows Schutz push the group out of the way as the car careened past them. He then sped to his patrol car to chase down the driver.

The driver was arrested for driving under the influence.

The Sheriff’s office posted on Facebook that it “would like to remind everyone of ‘Scott’s Law,’ commonly referred to as the ‘move over law.’”

“As of January 1st, 2017, the move over Law now applies to all vehicles that display flashing emergency lights, including commercial trucks and cars; the Law is no longer limited to authorized emergency vehicles only,” they wrote. “Please always remain alert and move over.”
