A Wisconsin woman called 911 to report herself as a drunk driver, MyFoxAustin reported.

“Somebody’s really drunk driving down Granton Road,” Mary Strey said during an Oct. 24 call to 911, according to tapes.

Trying to determine the location of the reported drunk driver, the dispatcher asked Strey: “Okay are you behind them, or…”

“No, I am them,” Strey said, according to MyFoxAustin.

The dispatcher verified, “You am them?”

“Yes, I am them,” said Strey.

“Okay, so you want to call and report that you’re driving drunk?” confirmed the dispatcher.

“Yes,” said Strey.

The dispatcher then told Strey to pull her car over, MyFoxAustin reported.

According to a report, police said Strey had blood-shot eyes and smelled of alcohol.

“I called in I’m drunk,” Strey told the officer who responded to the call, MyFoxAustin reported.

A local paper reported that Strey was charged with drunk driving and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.1 percent or more.
