'Hello 911? I'm driving drunk'

'Hello 911? I'm driving drunk': "BISMARCK, N.D. – Police get calls about drunken drivers all the time, but rarely do they come from the alleged offender. A 17-year-old girl in Bismarck called 911 on New Year's Eve 'to report herself driving under the influence,' police Lt. Randy Ziegler said. 'I've never heard of such a thing happening, and neither has anyone here.'

The girl told authorities her location shortly before midnight Wednesday and officers found her in a parked car near downtown, Ziegler said. She failed a sobriety test and was arrested for failing to have control of her vehicle while intoxicated."
