Woman calls 911 to report herself for drunk driving

By  | 

A Clark County woman recently called 911 to report a drunk driver, but it turns out, she was the one under the influence.

Dispatcher: Clark County 911

Mary Strey: Somebody's really drunk driving down Granton Road...

Dispatcher: ...Which way are they going?

Mary Strey: They are going, um...

Dispatcher: Towards Granton or towards Neillsville?

Mary Strey: Towards Granton

Dispatcher: Okay are you behind them, or...

Mary Strey: No, I am them

Dispatcher: You am them?

Mary Strey: Yes, I am them

Dispatcher: Okay, so you want to call and report that you're driving drunk?

Mary Strey: Yes

Deputies say 49-year-old Mary Strey from Granton made the call and did pull over when the dispatcher asked her to. A deputy had her do field sobriety tests.

The report shows she blew a 0.17, nearly twice the legal limit for driving. Deputies ticketed her for OWI, her first offense.

Deputies say when she called, she was about 2 and a half miles from home on Miller Road.
