Man, wife follow suspected drunken driver until police show up

HOUSTON – A Houston-area driver's instincts kicked in when he saw a suspected drunken driver on I-45 near La Marque last weekend.

Jonathan Chumley followed the driver while his wife captured video until police arrived.

At one point, you can see the car veer off the road and onto a curb, sending sparks flying.

After four calls to four different police departments, a state trooper caught up with the driver and pulled him over.

Gilbert Mendoza, 30, was arrested and is now facing charges of driving while intoxicated.
