Drunk Man Calls 911 for Lift Home

When you are way too drunk to drive home, who do you call? A friend? Uber? The Ghostbusters? This week's perp derp decided against all of those and instead dialed 911. Brilliant!

According to WFMZ News, a New Jersey man allegedly called 911 to get a ride to his apartment in Mansfield Township. Police published a statement that said:

“We understand and empathize with the people who will comment and say well, at least he didn't drive drunk.”

It also went on to say:

“We are happy he didn't get behind the wheel and get in an accident and hurt somebody or himself, but that's not the issue here. The main issue here is tying up the 911 line for a gratuitous ride home. We want the public to know that 911 is for emergencies—and that's it.”

Fortunately, the man finally got a lift home, but not before he was charged with disorderly conduct.
