Texas Man Pulls Alleged Drunk Driver Sirkon Ash Out Of His Car

Houston, Texas – A Texas man made a citizen’s arrest that was captured on video of an alleged drunk driver who was dangerously swerving ahead of him on the road. (Video below)

Alejandro Favreau was driving with his family when he saw the alleged drunk driver ‘driving like crazy, probably under the influence’ in front of him.

A family member filmed the chase and citizen’s arrest. The alleged drunk driver was identified as Sirkon Ash, according to Click2Houston.com. Ash had been convicted two previous times in the past five years of DWI. He was charged with driving while intoxicated and released from jail on a $10,000 bond.

Sirkon Ash was in a white Ford Mustang with a damaged passenger front side as he drove through the streets and eventually pulled into a parking lot. That’s when Favreau got out of his car and made the arrest, according to The Daily Mail.

Favreau exited his own car in the video and approached the white Ford Mustang and yelled at the driver to “stop it,” the newspaper reported. Another man joined the effort to detain Ash.

“(The) parking lot was full of people, many of (whom) were children,” Favreau wrote in his Facebook post, according to Click2Houston.com. “We had to act (quickly) to stop the guy before something bad happened.”

Favreau said that as he approached Ash’s car, the driver began backing away and hit another vehicle that was behind him. He said he tried to open Ash’s car door but it was locked.

“Luckily, he opened the window and I went in, put the car in park and opened the door,” Favreau wrote on Facebook. “I saw him trying to reach to put the car into gear, so I had to pull him out of the car.”

The two men then work together to force open the door and drag the driver out. The driver was identified as Sirkon Ash.

Favreau put the man under citizen’s arrest until the Houston police arrived.
