But finally, Rogers' name has made it into the news in a positive light. Fox8.com reports that while driving on Interstate 71 near Middleburg Heights, Rogers spotted a car ahead of him driving a bit oddly. The car was swerving back and forth and also appeared to be sporting a flat tire. Rogers called 911 while continuing to follow the erratic driver on the highway. When the obviously impaired driver finally pulled over (with the end of his car still sticking out into traffic), Rogers pulled up behind the vehicle and put on his hazard lights to direct passing cars away from a potential crash.
Officers eventually arrested the driver for driving under the influence, and heaped praise on Rogers for his efforts. Middleburg Heights Police Cheif John Maddox had this to say:
I thought his actions were above and beyond and I wanted to express to him as chief of police how much we appreciate what he did that night he helped keep Middleburg Heights safe.
