Police locate drunken man using a GPS chip


As many have discovered GPS has many useful perks.  Your GPS in your car can take you down all kinds of strange places if you’re ignorant enough to listen to it blindly.  Another nice perk is the chip in your cellphone allows for the police to find you in the event of an emergency.  It’s already been used to locate children and even Alzheimer’s patients, well now it’s been used for drunks as well.  One drunken 21 year old male to be specific.

The very inebriated male decided to go out partying and didn’t want to drink and drive.  So they made the logical choice to go riding off into the night on their bicycle.  If he’d wanted to bring home a lady friend, I’m sure she’d be thrilled to jump on the handlebars and ride off that way.  Well after he had been wandering around in the dark, drunk, on his bike he became lost.  So he pulled off next to the Mississippi River and took a nap.  After the nap on the muddy banks, he was still lost.  He called the police just before 6am and they used the GPS chip in his phone to find him.   The drunk had a blood alcohol level of 0.15 and there are conflicting stories on what the man actually ended up receiving.  He either received a ticket for public intoxication or a warning.
