A man helped LaPorte City Police arrest a drunk driving suspect

over the weekend.

Early Saturday.....police were called about a man stealing a pick up truck

on Jackson St. then getting out and fleeing in another vehicle.

Police say Teddy Leslie went after the suspect......followed by police

at 40 miles per hour down Monroe, Walker, Osborn and other snow and slush

covered streets.

At one point...police say an officer passed Leslie and got directly behind

the suspect with his flashing lights and siren activated.
