[ISP] Logansport Man Calls 911 to Report Himself Drunk Driving

Entry Description

Jasper County-Indiana State Police Trooper Danielle Elwood responded to a 911 call early this morning, which resulted in removing an impaired driver off the roadway. The impaired driver called 911 to report himself.

On Monday, at approximately 12:20 a.m., Jasper County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call from a male reporting that he was a drunk driver and needed to be taken off the roadway. Elwood responded to I-65 north bound at the 226 mile marker (four miles south of the Demotte/Roselawn exit) where she located a 1996 Toyota. Preliminary investigation revealed that the Toyota, driven by Matthew Devore, 24 of Logansport, lost control of the Toyota, went off the roadway into the grassy median. Devore was able to drive his Toyota out of the median but then realized one of his tires was flat. He then stopped his car on the outer shoulder and decided to call 911 to report himself as a drunk driver.

Devore related to Elwood that he “was sick of Indiana so he decided to go for a drive.” Devore’s knuckles were bloody, and explained that he had been playing darts earlier Sunday evening and punched a wall.

Devore tested .09% Blood Alcohol Content and was taken to Jasper County Jail in Rensselaer.

The Indiana State Police would like to remind anyone to contact their local, state or county police with reports of impaired or dangerous driving.

All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
