Drunk Driver Called 911 On Self To Report Wrong Way Driver – Himself
An alleged drunk driver was arrested in Nebraska back in March, and police just released the bodycam footage of the strange encounter they had with the driver.
The video, shared by the Lancaster Sheriff's Office on Thursday, includes audio of the unidentified drunk driver calling 911 and telling operators there was "somebody on the wrong side" of Highway 77.
He can be heard telling the 911 operator "He had his brights on, man. He almost ran me off the road." The man repeatedly told the operator that the other car was driving the wrong direction.
"That was gnarly. That was like, a lot," the driver said.
Then, the sheriff's office showed video of a deputy driving on the highway to catch up to the 911 caller to try and find where the wrong way driver was - but spotted the wrong way driver before he spotted the 911 caller.
"Do you know why I stopped you?" the officer asked.
"Yeah, because I was on the wrong side of the road," the man responded. "I must’ve missed an exit."
The officer then asked if he was the one who called 911.
"Yep, because I thought someone was on the wrong side of the f–king road, bro," he said.
"But it turned out it was you?" the deputy asked.
"Yep, like a dumb f–k," the suspect admitted.
The man's blood-alcohol content was over twice the legal limit, so he was arrested.
"Additional deputies will be on patrol during the Labor Day weekend," the sheriff's Facebook post added.
