A Logansport man was arrested early Monday morning after police said he called 911 to report he was driving drunk and that he needed to be taken off the roadway.

At approximately 12:20 a.m., deputies with the Jasper County Sheriff's Department received a call from 24-year-old Matthew Devore, who stated he crashed on Interstate 65 in Jasper County. Preliminary investigation revealed Devore lost control of his 1996 Toyota, driving it off the roadway and into the grassy median.

Deputies said Devore was able to drive his car out of the median but realized he had a flat tire. That is when deputies said he called 911 to report himself as a drunk driver.

Devore told deputies at the scene that he was "sick of Indiana so he decided to go for a drive." Authorities said the man, who had bloody knuckles, said he had been playing darts earlier in the evening and decided to punch a wall.

The 24-year-old man was transported to the Jasper County Jail after a test revealed he had a .09% BAC level.
