(North Olmsted) -  North Olmsted Police Patrolman Matt Beck is being called a hero for dragging a suspected drunk driver out of traffic on I-480. Beck had pulled over a car for speeding. The driver, 54 year old Richard Solis of Lakewood then got out of the car and staggered through oncoming traffic before falling to the pavement. As car whizzed by Patrolman Beck dragged the 340 pound Solis to safety. Solis appeared in court days ago and pleaded guilty, based largely on the dashcam video.
