By Clark Cahill, Reporter
IOWA CITY, Iowa — Police in Iowa City arrested a man for driving while intoxicated Christmas morning after the man called police on himself.
According to a criminal complaint, police reported to 900 Highway 6 East at 8:30 a.m. after a man called 911, but the dispatcher was unsure of the problem because the caller spoke little English. Police traced the location of the call and found 25-year-old Francisco Castro, of 10 Video Court, behind the wheel of a running vehicle.
After questioning, Castro allegedly told police he dialed 911 because he “felt too intoxicated to continue driving.”
After taking a preliminary breath test, Castro’s blood-alcohol content was .220, police said. Police also found an open container of hard liquor in the vehicle.
