"DUI Guy" calls police on himself

Police in Albuquerque, N.M. say the most recent DUI arrest for Antonio Candelaria (above) came after he called and told police to come and get him.

(CBS/AP) ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - There's something to be said for knowing when you've had too much to drink. Although if you're lying on the ground, it's probably already a little too late.

Authorities say that's what happened to an Albuquerque man who was arrested - again - for drunken driving, after he called police on himself.

KRQE-TV reports that Antonio Candelaria recently was arrested when officers found him drunk in his driveway and lying on the ground with his foot stuck in his motorcycle.

Police say the 50-year-old had called police for help after getting his foot stuck.

According to police, Candelaria's breath test results came out above .16, which is twice the legal limit in New Mexico.

Court records showed that Candelaria had a long list of DWI arrests and a handful of convictions.

Sounds like he should have his own hot-line to police headquarters.
