Chipper Jones 'rescues' Freddie Freeman from traffic gridlock
Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman had been stuck in snowy Atlanta traffic for well over five hours when he decided to pull off and get picked up by Chipper Jones in a four-wheeler.

Atlanta got a few inches of snow yesterday and while that might sound petty to some of us from further north, the city isn't used to those kinds of elements. And traffic was gridlocked to epic proportions due to accidents and other issues.
Going on 5 and a half hours in this traffic! Atlanta traffic is the worst but then you add snow...woah!!— Freddie Freeman (@FreddieFreeman5) January 28, 2014
Eventually Freeman did something many didn't have the luxury of doing. He pulled off, parked and had a hired gun grab a four-wheeler to "save" him:
So they presumably took it off road.
And here they are, arriving at Jones' home -- picture courtesy of Jones' girlfriend (and former Playmate) Taylor Higgins:
Freeman also noted on Twitter that he arrived 11 hours after he initially got in his car to head home. And that was with getting picked up on a four-wheeler by a rich buddy of his. That should give us an idea of the Atlanta traffic from Tuesday -- and make those of us who weren't there thankful.
