Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams can be thanked for taking an alleged drunk driver off the streets.

Williams was driving along the 500 block of North 63rd Street in West Philadelphia Sunday evening when a car zoomed past in the wrong lane, according to his office.

District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Tasha Jamerson says the DA’s security detail took chase and attempted to stop the car, but the driver, identified as Chanae Morris, continued to speed along the road.

The 24-year-old then blew through several traffic lights before crashing into another car. Morris was then taken into custody.

Morris has been charged with several crimes including Driving Under the Influence, Criminal Mischief and Simple Assault.

She was arraigned Monday and is being held on $7,500 bail.

Williams who's a heavy Twitter user, did not talk directly about the incident on the microblogging service.

Rather, he retweeted a series of posts by the District Attorney's Office's main Twitter account.
