According to police, a suspected drunk driver unintentionally contacted police after mistakenly believing that another driver was driving the wrong way on a Nebraska highway.

The Lancaster Sheriff’s Office released footage of an officer responding to a call about a wrong-way driver on Rte. 77 in Lincoln, Neb., from earlier this year.

Dashcam footage shows the police officer driving on the highway while the emergency call is played.

The caller explains that he is driving north and “someone is driving on the wrong side of the road.”

Unable to describe the vehicle, he tells the dispatcher, “He had his lights on, man. He almost ran me off the road.”

He added: “That was bad. That was quite a lot.”

The video switches to the deputy’s bodycam footage as he approaches a vehicle that was stopped on the grassy shoulder.

“Do you know why I stopped you?” the deputy can be heard asking.

“Yes, because I was on the wrong side of the street,” the man replied. “I must have missed an exit.”

The officer then asked the man if he had called 911.

“Yeah, because I thought someone was on the wrong side, bro,” he replied.


We’re sorry, but this video failed to load.

“But it turned out it was you?” The deputy remarked, to which the driver admitted, “Yeah, like a stupid bastard.”

The 911 caller was arrested after his blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

According to the sheriff’s office, no one was injured in the incident.

“Thankfully, a Lancaster County sheriff’s deputy was able to apprehend this driver before anyone was seriously injured,” the sheriff’s office posted on Facebook. The driver calls 911 for a suspected drunk driving incident
