Drunk man drives drunk woman to police station

Drove his neighbor to the station to answer questions about an assault involving her husband

Associated Press

CLAWSON, Mich. — Police said a 40-year-old man faces drunk driving charges after he drove an intoxicated woman to the police station. Police said Donald Chamberlain, from Clawson, drove his 35-year-old neighbor to the station Monday to answer questions about an assault involving her husband the previous day.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reported the woman left the station with Chamberlain after telling officers she was too drunk to answer questions.

Police said a patrol officer stopped the vehicle for having a cracked windshield. Police said Chamberlain's blood-alcohol level was 0.13 percent. Michigan's legal limit is 0.08.

Chamberlain pleaded not guilty Tuesday and was released on personal bond following his arraignment in Troy district court. Authorities did not know if he had a lawyer.

The woman was treated at a hospital for alcohol detoxification.
