The Alachua County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post that O'Neal stayed with the woman on Monday until deputies arrived at the scene.
He fist-bumped the deputies who thanked him for his help. The woman is heard on the video posted to Facebook, telling deputies that her tire blew out, forcing her to stop.
