IOWA CITY, Iowa - Iowa City police say a 25-year-old man called 911 to report a drunken driver: himself.

According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, police say Francisco Castro called the emergency number around 8:30 on Christmas morning.

Officers found Castro sitting in the driver's seat of a running vehicle.

Police say Castro told officers that he called 911 because he thought he was too drunk to drive.

A follow-up test showed his blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit.

There is no listed phone number for Castro.

Online court records don't yet list the case or his attorney.
