IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa City police say a 25-year-old man called 911 to report a drunken driver: himself.
According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, police say Francisco Castro called the emergency number around 8:30 on Christmas morning. Officers found Castro sitting in the driver's seat of a running vehicle.
Police say Castro told officers that he called 911 because he thought he was too drunk to drive. A follow-up test showed his blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit.
There is no listed phone number for Castro. Online court records don't yet list the case or his attorney.
