Man drives injured stranger on PCP to hospital

Hundreds are calling a Bridgeport man a hero after he drove an injured stranger on drugs to the hospital.



Gabriel Brunot, 24, says he was driving home late Sunday night when he found a man on the side of the road in need of help.



Without hesitation, the local artist opened his door and offered a ride to the stranger.



"I figured I could go drive home and try to sleep and hear about a man that died on Main Street, or I could possibly give him redemption," Brunot says.



Police say the injured man was on PCP and had punched a window, leaving shattered pieces of glass in his arm.



There is no word on the man's condition, and police say no charges have been filed against him.
