Bizarre DWI Stories from Across the Nation

Driver in Niagara County pulls over to dial 911 because he’s too drunk to drive
A recent news story in The Inquisitr reports that while Patrick Kelly, 33, attempted to do the right thing by pulling over on a remote road in New York and dialing 911 to let authorities know he was too drunk to continue driving – he probably did not expect to be arrested – which is exactly what happened.

Mr. Kelly admitted to police that he drank eight beers that night. He took a field sobriety test and failed. His blood alcohol content (BAC) registered at 0.15 percent. The legal limit in New York is 0.08 percent. Despite turning himself in, he was still arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) and was locked up in Niagara County Jail. His bail was set at $250.
