    With the price of a hotel room these days, who could blame her?

    .

    But in all seriousness I'm glad that idiot was arrested.

    CHP officers saved lives that night, I don't know how they stayed calm & collective...I doubt I would have.

    That's crazy. I did cringe when he tried to break the window on her side though. Passenger side was the smarter choice

    Yeah he was about to, wasn't he, he kind of flinched and raised his arm but then stopped himself before going around.

    No, he totally hit the glass full force, it just glanced off the window and didn't break.

    I do not understand why this video was posted online, and the compulsion some people appear to have to publicly shame someone who made a mistake. His obsessive filming of the entire event is a mystery to me. He can't even put his phone down while trying to open the car door. I'm baffled.

    The person you are finding fault with likely saved many lives! Would you run out into the middle of a freeway & try to wake someone that was passed out drunk?

    I love that he did it. More evidence to make sure that moronic driver goes down.

    Also, for pure entertainment value it's pretty incredible.

    Not sure he did it to shame her, more just to record something completely incredible going on. I mean, this is one of those "a picture speaks a thousand words" moments.

    I would have taken the same action in that situation but I would not have videoed it and then posted it online.

    And yes, a few years ago I witnessed a car slowly crash into a freeway guardrail, I stopped, had my wife call 911 while I attempted to help the driver who was unresponsive and having an epileptic seizure. I did not waste time videoing the event with my iPhone.

    Maybe you missed the part of him being a "Breaking Newstracker".

    Was he not to tape a possible fatal collision? He called 911 first & still risked his life by trying to wake her...banging on the window didn't faze her, breaking the glass barely woke her up.

    Maybe video of a white police officer putting his life in danger to save the life of a black drunk girl doesn't fit the narrative spewed by the Al Sharpto's of the world.

    Good for you. He DID though, and I'd argue that not only was time not wasted, but the video is probably going to be useful down the line.

    How exactly is this relevant?

    Yep. And from about 0:55 of GONE VIRAL: Woman passes out at the wheel - 10News.com KGTV ABC10 San Diego, his regular job appears to be that of a cameraman for ABC 10. https://www.facebook.com/paul.anderegg.77 seems to confirm his occupation as a cameraman.
    Yep, probably. I'm not sure if he was on duty at the time. But, he was doing his job, even if it was off-the-clock.

    As someone who has lost several innocent friends and family who ended up on the a** end of unrelated drunk drivers' paths of destruction over the years, and as a fan of natural selection in general, the best ending to this video would have been a semi rolling over her car... preferably with the driver of the semi leaving unscathed.

    I have zero tolerance for DWI/DUI/etc. All too often these idiots cause death and destruction to others and the property of others while doing little, if any, damage to themselves with only minor consequences. IMO this woman should get a life sentence for every vehicle that had to avoid her.
