Woman Calls 911 To Report Drunk Driver: Herself

I like a drunk with integrity.

She talked with dispatchers, explaining that she was driving because her boyfriend was too drunk to drive -- and that he made her call 911 because he thought "she was too drunk to drive," too. Dykstra explained she hung up because she doesn't like talking on her cell phone while driving.

During a call that lasted about four minutes, Dykstra told law enforcement everything they needed to know to find her.


Showing her citation to Action 2 News on Monday, Dykstra said she has no regrets about calling police on herself.

"I don't know. I'm so surprised. I did it myself, really. it's just one of those things. I didn't think I was driving so good so I said, let's tell them I'm not driving so good."

Dykstra was given a breath test and blew a 0.14. The limit considered too drunk to drive is 0.08.

Dodge County's sheriff says it's the first time a drunken driver actually called in a complaint about their self.

"I'm sure when her friends find out what transpired, I'm sure she will be the brunt of many jokes, but I give the woman a lot of credit," Sheriff Nehls said. "Intoxicated or not, she called in, thought she had too much to drink, we made the arrest. If more people did that, our highways would be a little safer."

If you're so worried that maybe you're too drunk to drive that you call the cops to report yourself, isn't there a pretty high likelihood you are, in fact, too drunk to drive?

That's the trouble with today's generation, with their mod haircuts and loud jazz music and "heavy petting parties." No follow through.

Thanks to Penn State Marine.
