Drunk driver boxed in by motorists until police arrive

A band of Windsor motorists performed something of a citizen's arrest on Saturday, when they boxed in a drunk driver and waited for police to arrive.

According to police, a black Jeep was spotted driving erratically at 9:20 p.m. near Riverside Drive and Jefferson Boulevard. The vehicle was reported again a short time later at Tecumseh and Banwell roads, and was swerving into oncoming traffic with no lights on.

When police arrived on the scene, they found that a group of motorists had surrounded the Jeep with their own vehicles, preventing it from driving any further.

Officers subsequently arrested a 41-year-old man for impaired driving and impounded his vehicle.
