A dumb drunk was arrested and charged with driving under the influence after he drove to a police station so he can use a restroom, police in Michigan said.

Pittsfield Township Police said that they arrested the 66-year-old man when he arrived at the police station on Sunday afternoon.

In a statement released Sunday night, police said that the man entered the Department of Public Safety in Pittsfield Township, which is located on Michigan Avenue near Platt Road, at 6:30 p.m. and said that he was looking for a bathroom.

A firefighter was the first person to make contact with the man and noticed that he seemed to be intoxicated. Police determined that the man drove to the building and parked his vehicle in the parking lot.

Police officers in the building were called and conducted sobriety tests on the man. He failed the tests and was then subjected to a breathalyzer.

Police said that the man’s blood alcohol content level was above the legal limit of 0.08. The man was taken to the Washtenaw County Jail, where he was held until he sobered up.

The man was charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
