Police said Deputy Russell Preston was home Thursday evening when a pickup truck hit a light pole, skidded into his front yard and kept going. Preston gave chase on foot, wearing a T-shirt, boxers and socks.
Johnson Bank president Dick Hansen was driving by and witnessed the commotion. He motioned for Preston to get in and together they followed the driver.
The two nabbed the driver a few blocks away. The 32-year-old driver was cited for operating while intoxicated and other offenses.
Hansen said Preston immediately identified himself as a deputy. Hansen said he had to take Preston's word, since "it's not like he was wearing his badge."
