11Drunk Driver Matthew Devore Calls 911 To Report Himself

A man who decided to drive after he drank alcohol at a bar turned himself into police when he lost control of his car and swerved it into a median.

Matthew Devore, 24, went to a bar in Indiana to drink and play darts. After he lost a game, he punched a wall and decided to take a drive.

He soon lost control of his car and drove it into a median. When he tried to get out of the median, he realized that his tire was flat, so he called 911.

He told the operator that he had too much to drink and shouldn't be driving in his condition.

When police arrived on the scene, they found his 1996 Toyota stuck on a median on Interstate 65.

They asked him why he decided to drink and drive. He said he was "sick of Indiana" and "decided to go for a drive."

Devore blew .09 percent on the breathalyzer, which is just above the legal limit in the state. The only injury Devore sustained was bloody knuckles from punching the wall.

Devore can consider himself lucky, as the CDC reported that in 2010, more than 10,000 people were killed in accidents when the driver was impaired by alcohol. That statistic includes more than 200 children killed as passengers.

The CDC said the deaths are preventable as intoxicated people can easily find access to a designated driver or a taxi. 

They have suggested lowering the illegal BAC threshold to .05 percent, since research has shown that impairment increases at that level.

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.
