Drunk Driver Matthew Devore Calls 911 to Report Himself
An Indiana man called 911 to report that he was driving drunk on Interstate 65 in Jasper County and needed to be taken off the road.
Indiana State Police arrested Matthew Devore, 24, in the early morning hours on Monday for driving while intoxicated.
According to police, Devore lost control of his car and ended up on a grassy median. When he moved the car, he discovered that it had a flat tire and pulled over onto the shoulder. They say that’s when Devore called 911 to report himself.
Devore’s blood alcohol level was .09 at the time of his arrest, just over Indiana’s legal limit of .08.
Indiana State Trooper Danielle Elwood reported Devore and said he "was sick of Indiana so he decided to go for a drive." Elwood found him at mile marker 226 on I-65.
Devore had bloody knuckles on one hand. He explained that he had been playing darts that night before and had decided to punch a wall.
He is being held at Jasper County Jail in Rensselaer.
