Michael Lester can be heard badly slurring his words during the New Year's Eve 911 call as he tells the operator: "I'm too drunk - I don't know where I'm at".

Polk County Sheriff officials said the dispatchers "did a fantastic job" as they managed to urge Lester to park his vehicle on the side of the road and wait for officers to find him.

The dispatcher continually tried to get Lester to pull over, kept him talking, and directed a deputy to his location. He told deputies he had three or four beers. Lester also said he had only slept four hours in the past four days and that he had swallowed meth earlier that day, according to deputies.
