Police: Pa. DUI suspect asked them to jail him

NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa. (AP) — Police say they had no choice but to grant a man’s wish to be taken to jail after they determined he was drunk when he drove off a road an into a field in south-central Pennsylvania.

The York Dispatch (http://bit.ly/15VGbKQ ) reports 20-year old Noah Julius Jr., of East Berlin, repeatedly asked Fairview Township police to take him to jail after the wreck about 10 p.m. Thursday.

Police say when they asked Julius why he wanted to go to jail he replied, “For driving drunk.”

Police say they arrested Julius after he failed a field sobriety test.

Online court records didn’t list an attorney for Julius after his latest arrest, but show he’s awaiting trial on drunken driving charges filed in May by the Carroll-Franklin police, also in York County.
