Florida authorities noted that they received a 911 call on New Year’s Eve 2017 from a man who said he was driving drunk and needed police assistance. Florida police shared the details of this strange and unusual 911 call on New Year’s Eve, from a man who said he wanted to report himself drunk-driving.
What exactly happened in this unusual call? The officials in the Polk County Sheriff’s office said the dispatcher kept him talking while directing officers to the scene. When the dispatcher asked Michael Lester, the drunk driver, where he was, he said, “I’m too drunk. I don’t know where I’m at.”
Lester would also admit to driving around and trying to get pulled over. He also told the dispatcher that he was “driving on the wrong side of the road.” Lester was told to park his truck and wait for officers.

To end the entire awful scenario, deputies found Lester in the middle of the street in his parked car where he told them that he had drank beers and swallowed methamphetamine. The sheriff’s office Facebook post says Lester’s criminal history includes DUI, aggravated battery, drug possession and hit-and-run.
“Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious crime. Innocent people are too often injured or killed from impaired drivers. DUI is not a laughing matter,” sheriff’s officials wrote. “However … in this particular incident, nobody was hurt, so we couldn’t help but LOTO (that means we Laughed Our Tasers Off).”
