LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man walked into the Hall of Justice in downtown Louisville early Monday morning, announced that he was drunk and told a police officer to arrest him.

The arresting officer said Abdiaziz S. Hirsi, 29, said he needed to go to jail because he drank too many beers. He even placed his hands behind his back as if ready to be handcuffed.

The officer said Hirsi smelled strongly of alcohol, had bloodshot and glassy eyes, was unsteady on his feet, had slurred speech and appeared to be a danger to the public.

The incident happened around 12:35 Monday morning.

Hirsi is charged with alcohol intoxication.
