Red Sox's Schilling Calls Police, Who Nab Bad Driver
WESTWOOD, Mass. (May 27) -- Boston ace Curt Schilling helped police catch a man driving erratically Tuesday night, hours after he led the Red Sox to a win over the Oakland Athletics.
On his way home Tuesday, Curt Schilling spotted an erratic driver, who got pulled over by local authorities.
Schilling was headed to his suburban Boston home when he spotted a car driving unevenly on Route 109 in Westwood, a two-lane highway. He called police on his cell phone, and police tracked the driver down and pulled him over.
"We just noticed somebody almost cause two head-on collisions," Schilling said after the Red Sox's game Thursday. "It was obvious they were either hurt or impaired. I have four kids. When I'm gone from home, people like that terrify me."
Police responded promptly, Schilling said.
"They did an unbelievable job," he said.
The dispatcher who answered the phone at the Westwood Police Department on Thursday said there would be no one available to comment on the incident until Friday morning.
