(CBS/AP) ROSELAWN, Ind. - A northern Indiana man who realized he was too drunk to drive - but was already doing so - called 911,  and told dispatchers he was driving drunk and needed to be taken off the road.

A sheriff's deputy was dispatched early Monday, and obliged, charging 24-year-old Matthew Devore of Logansport with DWI.

State Police say Devore lost control of his car early Monday and it ended up in a grassy median with a flat tire.

According to WISH-TV, Devore told an Indiana State Trooper he "was sick of Indiana" so he decided to "go for a drive." He said had been playing darts earlier in the night and had bloody knuckles he blamed on punching a wall.

Devore was arrested along Interstate 65 in Jasper County. Police said Devore's blood-alcohol level was .09, just over Indiana's legal limit for driving. He was being held at the Jasper County Jail.
