(CBS/AP) NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa. - A Pennsylvania man is apparently quite comfortable behind bars, in more ways than one.

The York Dispatch reports 20-year old Noah Julius Jr., of East Berlin, repeatedly asked police to take him to jail after they determined he was drunk when he drove off a road into a field in south-central Pennsylvania.

Police say they had no choice but to grant Julius's wish. They say when they asked him why he wanted to go to jail he replied, "For driving drunk."

Police say they arrested Julius after he failed a field sobriety test.

The wreck happened about 10 p.m. Thursday.

Online court records show Julius was already awaiting trial on drunken driving charges filed in May by the Carroll-Franklin police, also in York County.
