January 6, 2021
As a 6-foot-4, 300-pound security guard, Vincent Williams didn't hesitate to help when he saw a Minnesota state trooper struggling with a driver who crashed his car Sunday night in Brooklyn Center.
Williams, 30, of Fridley, helped the trooper detain the suspect, Matthew William Cleve, 38, of Zimmerman, who faces three felony charges related to the incident.
Williams said he was driving behind Cleve's Honda Accord shortly after 8:30 p.m. and watched it veer into the opposite lane and crash near Highway 252 and 70th Avenue North. Williams got out to make sure the driver was OK and waited for authorities to arrive.
