Video: Ohio cop pulls suicidal man from freeway during traffic stop

Patrolman Matt Beck had just pulled over the suspected drunk driver when the man bolted into traffic


NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio — Patrolman Matt Beck had just pulled over a suspected drunk driver last week, when the man bolted into traffic on I-480.

"He really couldn't believe what he was seeing at the time. It didn’t take him long to jump into action and help this guy out," said Sgt. Bob Wagner of North Olmsted Police.

But the biggest complication in the rescue was the man pleading "just kill me" as he stood in the highway, as if he wanted to get hit by a car.
