One member of the convoy driving along the road was able to capture the incredible footage of the incident.

After being boxed-in by truckers, a flushed-looking Bonnar was quickly arrested by police and handcuffed.

The ex-UFC star remains in custody on suspicion of driving under the influence, unsafe starting or moving of a stopped vehicle and resisting a public officer.

Nurse Katie Dyer, whose son filmed the bizarre scenes, told the Daily Mail Bonnar would have killed himself if allowed to drive on.

Dyer said: "If nobody had stopped him I think he would be dead. He was going to hit something, whether it was a car or a wall, and another person could have died.

"We were coming on the I-15 southbound into Las Vegas and he came across the dirt, coming into the south.

"He didn't stop or wait or anything, he came straight out into the traffic and he was very lucky.

"We have radios so we said, 'Who is calling the police?' One of our people caught up to him and he seemed to be laying down.

"He wasn't sitting up in the driver's seat. He was going from shoulder to shoulder, from the emergency lane all the way across.

"Two truckers had slowed down to stop him. We carried on and boxed our Jeeps around him.

"There were six of us. We slowly stopped with the box around him."

Dyer went on to say Bonnar initially appeared to have his eyes close, before he "woke up" and panicked onlookers to tie him to his car.

She continued: "By the time we got over there, his eyes weren't open and he wasn't moving. We were trying to find his keys but he wakes up.

"We were all panicking. He had the car in drive and was hitting the car behind and mine in front. He was ramming into my jeep.

"We literally had to tie his arms to his door."

Indiana-native Bonnar was a 2013 inductee to the Hall Of Fame, but hasn't fought since 2014 after going 8-6 in his seven years in the UFC.
