Drunk Driver Calls 911 and Reports Herself


Recommended Posts


A woman in Fox Lake, Wisconsin decided to drive home after a night at the bar. On the way, she called 911 to report she may be too drunk to drive.

Pat Dykstra has an OWI ticket because of this 911 call:

Caller: I just want to know if somebody can follow me home because somebody seems to think I can't drive home straight.

911: OK, why is that?

Caller: He seems to think I am too intoxicated to drive.

911: OK, and so you called 9-1-1 or he called 9-1-1?

Caller: Well, he wanted me to call 9-1-1 'cause he thinks I'm too drunk to drive.

When asked what she thought would happen when she called 911, Pat said "I'm not really sure. I don't really think I was thinking that much at the time."

She gave such a good description police found her at her home and gave her a breathalyzer.

She blew a .14.

Pat says she's not sure if the drunk driving ticket was really fair. After all, by the time she got the ticket, her car was parked right here in the garage.

Pat said "I was home already in my pajamas going to bed."

Dodge County Sheriff Todd Nehls says Pat did the right thing.

Todd Nehls said "I think a judge will look at her and say you know what, you stepped up to the plate. You did the right thing. I think it's commendable."

She was even safety minded when she called 911.

Caller: I don't like being on the phone while I'm driving.

911: OK. Well I can certainly get you go Pat. I don't want to cause you…

Caller: I would appreciate that 'cause I don't like driving on the phone.

So would she drunk dial 911 again?

Pat said "It's good in a way, but if I'd thought about it, it wasn't good for my driving record."
