In an incident that seems like reality imitating a sitcom rerun (The Andy Griffith Show), authorities say a man drove himself while under the influence of alcohol to a small-town Kentucky police station, where he requested that officers arrest him.n

The Kentucky New Era reports that 26-year-old Christopher L. Stewart drove one Tuesday night to the station in Hopkinsville, near the Tennessee border, and slammed on his brakes, nearly hitting a police cruiser. The newspaper reports that Stewart approached officers and said he was ready to go to jail for DUI.

Stewart reportedly told police that he drank a pint before driving to the station. Police say Stewart also attempted to drink a closed bottle of fuel injector cleaning fluid, but officers stopped him.

He was charged with driving under the influence. It was unclear whether he had a lawyer to contact for comment on the case.
