Driver calls 911 to report he’s drunk

ROSELAWN, Ind. – A northern Indiana man who called 911 and told dispatchers he was driving drunk and needed to be taken off the road got his wish when a sheriff’s deputy arrived.

Indiana State Police said 24-year-old Matthew Devore of Logansport was arrested early Monday along Interstate 65 in Jasper County. Police said Devore had a blood-alcohol level of 0.09 percent, just over Indiana’s legal limit for driving. He was being held at the Jasper County Jail on a driving while intoxicated charge.

The said Devore lost control of his car early Monday and it ended up in a grassy median with a flat tire.

Police said Devore then called 911, saying he was a drunk and needed to be taken off the road. A sheriff’s deputy was then dispatched to the scene.
