Woman drunk at the wheel - reporting herself

Wisconsin Police Department got a call from a female – 49-year-old, reporting herself drunk at the wheel, driving. The officer reported this:

'I arrived at about 11:28pm and observed a silver parked in the eastbound lane about one half mile east of Miller Ave with the vehicle's flashers on. I approached the vehicle and met with the driver Mary. Mary had blood shot eyes and I could smell the strong odor of an intoxicating beverage in her breath. Mary told me 'I called in, I'm drunk. Mary said she had began drinking earlier in the day and drank seven or eight brandy and cokes at different bars in Neillsville and stopped drinking about thirty minutes before she called the Sheriff's Department'.


Here it is Mary's discussion with the dispatcher:


Dispatcher: Clark County 911

Mary Strey: Somebody's really drunk driving down Granton Road...

Dispatcher: ...Which way are they going?

Mary Strey: They are going, um...

Dispatcher: Towards Granton or towards Neillsville?

Mary Strey: Towards Granton

Dispatcher: Okay are you behind them, or...

Mary Strey: No, I am them

Dispatcher: You am them?

Mary Strey: Yes, I am them

Dispatcher: Okay, so you want to call and report that you're driving drunk?

Mary Strey: Yes
