    Man chases down car and saves little girl

    Hope he lands a better job somewhere, seems his ethics are in the right place..

    Good Samaritan describes chase that led to girl's freedom - CNN.com

    (CNN) -- Some may call it chance, but Victor Perez believes a higher power was involved Tuesday when he chased after a vehicle suspected of carrying an abducted 8-year-old girl in Fresno, California.
    A construction carpenter by trade until work slowed down, Perez has been recently cutting wine grapes, earning minimum wage.
    Early Tuesday, there was a light rain, making that task unlikely.
    Perez, 29, tuned in to television news coverage of the abduction, paying attention to the description and video of the suspect's pickup truck.
    At about 6:45 a.m., Perez was outside his house talking with his cousin about the abduction when they saw a vehicle matching that description: an older-model, reddish-brown Chevrolet with a white stripe on the side.
    "I thought, that could be the truck," Perez, a father of two boys, told CNN Tuesday night.
    That's when he sprang into action. He jumped into his 1988 white Ford pickup and followed the vehicle.
    Perez tried to cut off the vehicle several times to question the driver. One time, the driver told him, "I don't have no time [to talk]. My battery is dying."
    The second time Perez pulled up to the Chevy, he saw the little girl, her head popping up from below view, and knew something was wrong.
    "I kept telling him, 'That's not your little girl,'" said Perez. "We argued. We exchanged words."
    Perez -- who admitted he did wonder at some point whether the motorist had a gun -- pulled up to the truck a third, and then a fourth time, when he blocked the pickup truck.
    Immediately after the truck stopped, the girl was out. Perez said he believes the driver pushed her out.
