Josh Harrellson was among the fan favorites on last season's Kentucky team that made the Final Four -- and that was before he started stopping drunk drivers.

"About four or five of us guys jumped on the truck and reached in there and turned the keys off," Harrelson told WKYT while detailing how he and some friends recently stopped a drunk driver -- with children in the backseat -- from hitting a third vehicle. The man had already hit two vehicles in a parking lot moments after starting his car. One of those vehicles was Harrellson's truck.

"We were just worried because he could have put it in drive at any time and maybe ran somebody over, or while our arms were in the car, just kept going and we could have been drug or something," Harrellson said. "I'm the type of guy that, I want to make sure everybody else is alright. ... I'm fine. My truck got hit. That's replaceable. I was just thankful nobody got hurt and the kids were fine."

So add this to the list of impressive things Harrellson has done in the past year.

I'd even rank it ahead of the 23-point, 14-rebound effort he had at Louisville.

I bet MADD would, too.

Unfortunately Billy's character is what got him fired and it should have. You can't try to have sex with every women you meet. Billy and Rick both need character overhauls because of this common male affliction.

Wow a positive thing on CBS!!!

I honestly started to read this post thinking that Harrellson was the drunk driver, but I stand corrected as I read on.

Harrelson kicked my teams butt in the tourney, so this is not easy, but here goes:

Bravo Josh Harrellson.  Not only did your words come off well spoken, but your actions did as well!

Great story!

Josh Harrellson is not a bad dude

Yes, this non-UK fan appreciates Josh and his friends' actions to avoid further damage and possible injury to the driver and children in the car. Josh is one of the best stories in college basketball as he developed in his senior year not only get starter time but quality statistics. As a senior I assume Josh was recruited by Billy Gillespie. Billy did recruit with character in mind.

The haters do themselves disservice here by bashing a man being called a hero. It is not necessary or even appropriate to take dislike of a team into the individual players who rise and fall on their own merits, especially off the court. Let us be honest and appreciative of individuals who reveal good characteristics. The politicians should not be our role models as they bash everything and everyone who disagrees with them. People are people and about the same all around the world. We all want to be liked. We all fear or dislike in others what we fear and dislike about ourselves. A good lesson to learn.

TEAMWORK1 MUST BE ON ALKASELZER BLOW HIMSELF TO THINK JOSH IS ANYTHING BUT AN HONORABLE YOUNG MAN. IM TIRED OF THESE HATERS RIDICULING OTHER TEAMS AND THEIR PLAYERS. YOU DONT HAVE TO LIKE A PERSON OR A TEAM BUT TO SAY WHAT THIS PERSON SAID IS MORONIC. JOSH DID THE RIGHT THING AND HE GETS CRITICIZED LIKE THIS, WOW!

Dope deal gone bad is what I heard. He sold Harrelson some alka selzers that were chopped up for cocaine and they made Harrelson's nose have the fizzes.

That's a new low even for a hoosier.
