(Newser) – Police say a 31-year-old man has been arrested after he drove to a Louisiana state police headquarters to file an accident report ... while drunk. Patrick Ruffner called state police Saturday, saying his vehicle was struck by a hit-and-run driver on Interstate 10 in Baton Rouge. He was told to come to Troop A's offices to fill out a crash report. A trooper says that when Ruffner got out of his SUV, a trooper smelled alcohol and gave him field sobriety and breath tests. Ruffner was booked with driving on a suspended license and with first-offense driving while intoxicated.
