The Spice Girls' tour bus driver helped capture a carjacking suspect in Michigan on Saturday (February 16).

The driver reportedly called police to report a possible drunk driver who was weaving through traffic on Interstate 75 in Detroit.

Police soon tracked down the motorist and arrested him in connection with a car jacking that had occurred at a gas station in nearby Burton.

The Spice Girls were scheduled to play a show that night at The Palace of Auburn Hills near Detroit.

The unidentified motorist is being held in the Genesee County Jail awaiting arraignment, reports the Associated Press.
