HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Authorities say a Hopkinsville man asked police to arrest him after he admitted to driving to the police station under the influence of alcohol.

The Kentucky New Era ( ) reports 26-year-old Christopher L. Stewart was arrested at 8:19 p.m. Tuesday after he drove to the police department and slammed on his brakes before nearly hitting one of the police cruisers.

Stewart then approached officers and told them he was ready to go to jail for DUI.

He 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 arrested and charged with driving under the influence. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
