Drunk driver called 911 to report huimself

State police in western Pemnsylvania arrested a man on Saturday after he called 911 to report that he was driving away from a tavern but was going to pull over because he had drunk too much to drive safely.

Troopers found John Wilson in the parking lot of a gas station in Sligo, a tiny town with fewer than 300 households, at 12:45 a.m..

A trooper said this in his report on the incident: "(Mr.Wilson) related that he had left the bar and was on his way home when he realized he was too drunk to make it home." Police said charges that could include driving under the influence will be filed after results of a blood-alcohol test are known. (info from Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)
