Man called 911 to report drunk driver – who happened to be himself

A Florida gentleman who had been drinking, taking meth, and who hadn’t slept in several days did the responsible thing when he called the police to report a drunk driver – namely himself.

“I’m too drunk. I don’t know where I’m at,” the driver, Michael Lester, told the dispatcher.

When the operator asked what he’d been doing that night, he said, “I don’t know, driving around, trying to get pulled over, actually.” He later added, “I’m driving on the wrong side of the road.”

When asked to pull over to the side of road to wait for police, the man kinda did what he was told, but not exactly. “Look, I’m parked in the middle of the road,” he said.

Fortunately nobody was hurt.

According to AP:

The sheriff’s office Facebook post says Lester’s criminal history includes DUI, aggravated battery, drug possession and hit-and-run.

“Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious crime. Innocent people are too often injured or killed from impaired drivers. DUI is not a laughing matter,” sheriff’s officials wrote. “However … in this particular incident, nobody was hurt, so we couldn’t help but LOTO (that means we Laughed Our Tasers Off).”
