When three motorists encountered a driver traveling recklessly on an Ozaukee County highway this week, they all had the same thought: This guy needs to be stopped.

Police say the driver they boxed in was heavily intoxicated, with a blood-alcohol content four times what the state considers evidence of intoxication.

They just came together and made sure the driver could go no further.

Glenn Blumenberg, a 63-year-old factory worker from the Town of Saukville, said he used his rusty 1980 Chevy truck to block the impaired driver from the front.
