Drunk driving and dialing

I'm pretty sure this is some kind of first:
A 17-year-old girl in Bismarck called 911 on New Year's Eve "to report herself driving under the influence," police Lt. Randy Ziegler said. "I've never heard of such a thing happening, and neither has anyone here."

The girl told authorities her location shortly before midnight Wednesday and officers found her in a parked car near downtown, Ziegler said. She failed a sobriety test and was arrested for failing to have control of her vehicle while intoxicated.
Well, she sure made the cops' job easy, huh? Seriously, though, what she did was very dangerous. You're much more likely to have an accident if you talk on the phone while driving.
