Man Calls 911 to Report Himself Driving Drunk

WINTER HAVEN (970 WFLA) -- A Winter Haven man called 911 to report a driver under the influence... himself. 

The Polk sheriff's office says 39-year-old Michael Lester called a dispatcher on New Year's Eve during the 8 p.m. hour, telling them he was driving drunk on the WRONG side of the road. 

Lester also told the dispatcher he'd had three or four beers, and had SWALLOWED meth. She urged him to pull over, and kept him on the line until deputies arrived, as horns and sirens blared in the background. They found him in the middle of U-S Highway 17 in Winter Haven. Just as he said, he was right in front of the Publix.
