MAN CALLS POLICE ON HIMSELF

[[OC]]
    PEOPLE CONFESS TO A LOT OF THINGS WHEN THEY'RE UNDER THE INFLUENCE. SOME TEXT FRIENDS, OTHERS CALL EXES... 
    BUT ONE MAN IN FLORIDA CALLED THE POLICE -- ON HIMSELF.
    TAKE A LISTEN:
[[TAKE SOT]]
[[RUNS - :08 ]]  
[[OUTCUE: "CATCH UP WITH ME." ]]   
(("What is it you're trying to report sir? Uh I was just drunk driving. Your last name sir? Uh I think I'm gonna go get something to eat, they can catch up with me."))
[[OC]]
    TURNS OUT THAT GUILT GOT THE BEST OF MICHAEL LESTER.
    THE POLK COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE POSTED A SHOUT-OUT TO HIM ON FACEBOOK.
    EVEN THOUGH DRUNK DRIVING IS NO LAUGHING MATTER, POLICE HOPE THAT LESTER'S CONFESSION CALL WILL DISSUADE PEOPLE FROM GETTING BEHIND THE WHEEL AFTER USING ALCOHOL OR DRUGS.
