CAMBRIA, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a 33-year-old western New York man called 911 and reported that he was too drunk to drive.
The Niagara County Sheriff's Office tells local media that the Lockport resident was driving on a rural road in the neighboring town of Cambria late Wednesday night when he called emergency dispatchers to report that he was drunk and wouldn't drive any farther because he didn't want to hurt anyone.
Deputies found him in his car a short time later and arrested him after he failed a field sobriety test.
Police say he had a blood-alcohol content of .15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit for driving while intoxicated. He was charged with DWI.
