Man Calls 911 To Report Himself For Drunk Driving

Polk County Sheriff's office shows Michael Lester

Police in Florida are sharing details Monday of an unusual phone call they received on New Year's Eve.

He said when asked again: 'No, I don't feel like giving that to you right now'.

Michael Lester, of Winter Haven, Florida, called the Polk County Sheriff office dispatcher who directed officers to his location on Sunday evening.

Lester was arrested for driving under the influence, driving on the wrong side of the road and no seat belt. He reported himself to the police and told the dispatcher that he was driving drunk, and needed to be pulled over.

He could not even tell the operator where he was when asked, he told her 'I don't know, I'm too drunk'.

Lester later insisted he had already pulled over.

After failing a series of field sobriety tests, deputies said Lester told deputies he only had two beers, then changed it to the tune of three or four.

Cops have now released the audio of the "entertaining" 911 call made by him on December 31 to warn other drivers about the dangers of driving under the influence.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office posted the 911 call on Facebook using the hashtag "Hello 9-1-1 I'm hammered".

He also said he'd hadn't slept in days.

The post also mentioned Lester's criminal history, which includes DUI, aggravated battery, drug possession and a hit-and-run. "However, in this particular incident, nobody was hurt, so we couldn't help but "LOTO" (that means we Laughed Our Tasers Off)".

Polk County Sheriff's Office has now used his recording to urge citizens to not drink and drive.
