I called 911 on my room mate who was very intoxicated and decided to jump from my 2nd floor balcony. When he moaned about his back pain I called 911 for help. During the call they asked where he was, and I realized a few seconds later that he drove off in his car! They asked if he had been drinking, and of course I told them yes. They located him and he tested .213 on the breath test.
