(Newser) – Quite a role reversal in South Africa on Sunday night, when a driver saw a police van crazily swerving before driving into oncoming traffic. When the van finally stopped, motorist Russell George got out of his car and confronted the driver. But the officer drove off and George pursued, while calling emergency services. The van stopped again, and this time George took action. "I could smell the booze on him. He refused to get out of the car, so I took his keys," George says. He then dragged the officer into the back of the van and locked it, the Independent of South Africa reports. The officer apparently explained, while crying, that it was his birthday and he had gotten bottles of alcohol from his friends. He was later arrested.
