Newly released footage shows the jaw-dropping moments of an eyewitness running and capturing a man who had just fatally struck an off-duty Texas detective in a drunk-driving car crash, the NY Post reported. 

The video, obtained by WFAA, Fox 4, and other outlines, shows the convicted killer Dylan Molina fleeing the fatal scene on foot. The crash occurred on Nov. 27, 2021, killing  Euless police Detective Alex Cervantes and injuring his wife and two kids who were also in the vehicle. 

Thanks to the good Samaritan, Justin Gonzalez, who quickly sprung into action, chasing Molina down and pinning him to the ground until police arrived. Gonzalez is heard in the video screaming, 

“Hey! Get your f— a– over here, motherf—er.”

Gonzalez told the outlet

“I don’t know why it had to happen that it did… But I knew he wasn’t going anywhere. I couldn’t let him go.” 

Molina pleaded guilty in January to intoxication manslaughter and three counts of intoxication assault, according to the Fort-Worth Star Telegram. He was sentenced to

“15 years on the manslaughter plea and 10 years each on the assault pleas with the sentences to run concurrently,”

the newspaper reported.

The bartender, Cala Richardson, who served Molina

“eight double vodka cocktails,”

the day of the fatal crash, was also arrested and charged with one count of sale to a certain person, a misdemeanor, according to police per the Star-Telegram. She could face up to a year in prison if convicted.
