SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah Highway Patrol trooper successfully stopped a suspected drunk driver going the wrong way on I-80 Sunday before anyone was seriously injured.

Tux Chavez Cleyver Gustavo, 28, was arrested for investigation of two counts of DUI, having an open container in a vehicle, and not having a license or insurance.

The incident happened about 11 p.m. on I-80 near the Great Saltair. Gustavo was traveling east in the westbound lanes, according to a statement from the UHP. He was traveling at “slower speeds,” the UHP stated.

When Gustavo ignored the trooper’s lights and sirens signaling him pull over, the trooper performed a PIT maneuver on the vehicle, using his car to hit the rear of Gustavo’s vehicle causing it to spin out and stop, according to the UHP.

“Although the crash was minor, the trooper’s car was disabled. The driver and the trooper were both checked at the scene and cleared by medical,” the UHP stated.

Inside Gustavo’s vehicle, troopers noticed an open alcoholic beverage container in the center console and an empty container on the floor, according to a police affidavit.

“Due to the quick action of the motorist that called 911, the professionalism of the highway patrol dispatch and the state troopers this incident could have ended much worse,” the UHP stated.

Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin on Antonio Brown: ‘Once a Steeler Always a Steeler’

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin appeared on ESPN’s First Take Monday morning to defend his quarterback, Mason Rudolph, from allegations leveled by Cleveland Browns defender Myles Garrett, who has said the scuffle that occurred last fall between the two teams was instigated by Rudolph calling him a racial slur.

Garrett was reinstated by the NFL last week after the indefinite suspension that resulted when he swung his helmet and hit Rudolph in the head back in November.

For his part, Rudolph vehemently denied Garrett’s allegations. “1000% false,” Rudolph began via Twitter Saturday morning. “Bold-Faced Lie. I did not, have not, and would not utter a racial-slur. This is a disgusting and reckless attempt to assassinate my character,” Rudolph wrote, retweeting an article referencing Garrett’s allegation.

1000% False.

Bold-Faced Lie.

I did not, have not, and would not utter a racial-slur.

This is a disgusting and reckless attempt to assassinate my character. https://t.co/mZcEcC0tCl

It seems as though his head coach agrees.

Mike Tomlin on First Take: ‘Hacked Off’ About Myles Garrett Allegation

“I took offense to it to be quite honest with you,” Tomlin told Stephen A. Smith about Garrett’s allegation. “When it first transpired during the season, we don’t have a lot of time to pause and fight battles of that nature. We said our piece, we were completely cooperative with all parties involved, the Cleveland Browns and the National Football League office. Then, we had to move on, we had another game awaiting us. But when these allegations returned this past weekend, I thought it was appropriate that Mason is properly defended.”

Tomlin also noted that he was upset with the network (ESPN) that conducted Garrett’s interview this past weekend. So, he went on that same network to criticize how it handled the interview.

“To be quite honest with you, we were hacked off at what we saw this weekend. Not specifically for Myles Garrett, he’s been in the lane that he is in, but what was displayed by ESPN in that panel, the way that the situation was presented, I don’t think was fair to Mason Rudolph, and that is why I am here today.”

Tomlin Dishes on WR Antonio Brown

Not to be outdone, Smith then asked Tomlin about troubled wide receiver Antonio Brown, who was with the Steelers for nine years before leaving in 2019. Brown is no longer in …read more
