A Wisconsin woman called 911 to report herself for drunk driving.
Wisconsin (WiredPRNews.com) – A woman in Wisconsin reported herself to authorities for driving while intoxicated. As reported by the NY Daily News, Mary Strey, 49, called 911 to report a drunk driver, revealing to the operator that it was she who was under the influence.
Srey is quoted in the report as stating to the 911 dispatcher, “Somebody’s really drunk driving down Granton Road.” She further replied after the operator inquired as to whether she was following behind a drunk driver, “No…I am them… I don’t want to hurt anybody. I’m drunk.” The dispatcher then reportedly instructed Strey to pull over.
Strey was reportedly charged with a misdemeanor and is set to appear in court Dec. 10. Her cousin David Strey is quoted by the NY Daily News as stating of her call to 911, “That was a good thing… It would have probably been cheaper if she’d backed off one step and not gotten in the car.”
