Steering Wheel Stops Drunk Driver

A drunken California driver tried to sneak back into a Cathedral City gated community on New Years Eve to evade arrest.

As he leaned over to enter the gate code the hapless future felon fell out of his pickup-truck (left) and was later found dangling outside the door with a foot caught in the steering wheel.  Immobilized.

The fire department sawed-off the steering wheel so the California CHP could arrest and haul him and his steering wheel off to jail.

The unidentified goof is charged with suspicion of drunk driving and hit-and-run.
