Woman Reports Herself Driving Drunk

Mary Strey called police in Clark County, Wisconsin to report a drunk driver. What made this call so unusual was that she was reporting on herself!
"Somebody's really drunk driving down Granton Road," she told the 911 dispatcher.

The dispatcher asked if the Strey was behind the drunk driver, to which she replied "No, I am them."

The dispatcher asked, "Okay, so you're calling to report you're driving drunk?"

"Yes," Strey said.

Strey pulled over and waited for the responding officer, who gave her a Breathalyzer test which showed her blood alcohol level was .19. Strey is due in court over the matter in December. Link -via Arbroath

Sounds like she didn't realize how drunk she was til she started driving, didn't want to continue, but didn't know what else to do besides call the cops.

This has happened before in WI. I've never heard of it happening elsewhere, but my guess is that it has...but whenever I hear of things like this it reminds me of WI.

I guess she must have thought, "Gee, I could pull over and wait it out with no negative consequences, or I could report myself for a felony and pay thousands of dollars more for insurance over my lifetime. Yeah, I guess the insurance company needs more money."

My first thought was, if she's collected enough to report herself, she can't be that drunk. But then I thought, if she's reporting herself, she's GOT to be trashed. Either way, I'm glad that she had the sense/stupidity enough to do it because no one has any business driving if they are drunk (duh).
