Woman Calls 911 on Herself

MYFOX NATIONAL -- A Wisconsin woman called 911 to report a drunk driver. It turned out that she identified the driver as herself.

According to the released 911 tape, Mary Strey of Granton, Wisc., called the emergency number on Oct. 24 at about 11:20 p.m. and reported "Somebody's really drunk driving down Granton Road." The dispatcher tried to determine which way the reported driver was headed and asked Strey "Okay are you behind them, or..."

Strey responded, "No, I am them."

The dispatcher verified, "You am them?"

"Yes, I am them," replied Strey.

"Okay, so you want to call and report that you're driving drunk?" confirmed the dispatcher. "Yes," Strey answered.

The dispatcher then directed Strey to stop driving and pull over. The 911 call has been posted online by WSAW-TV.

According to the police report , Strey had blood-shoot eyes and smelled of alcohol. She told the officer,"I called in I'm drunk."

The Wausau Daily Herald reported that Strey was cited and charged with drunken driving and operating with a blood-alcohol level of 0.1 percent or more. An initial court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 10.

Clark County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Jim Backus said in The Daily Herald that calls of people reporting themselves are rare, and he couldn't recall other drunken drivers turning themselves in to police.

Last month a man in Minnesota was charged with drunk driving in a motorized La-Z-Boy chair. The police have now put the chair on eBay with the proceeds going to the police, the state and the prosecutor's office.

At least she had the sense to get help before she killed someone. Shame she didn’t just pull over and sleep it off.

Yes, .1 = .10 = .100 = .1000

It’s “infinite” blood alcohol content in 7 states.

Events in the past may be roughly divided into those which probably never happened and those which do not matter.
