A man with the last name “Beers” apparently had several too many last night, got behind the wheel drunk and crashed into a ditch, disoriented and stranded somewhere in rural central Iowa. Captain Gary Foster, of the Story County Sheriff’s Department picks up the man’s story.A cellular phone call came into the 911 dispatch about 3:41 this morning. The man said he’d gone into the ditch, he was very intoxicated and had no idea where he was or what was around him. To make matters worse, the car wouldn’t start. Captain Foster says 31-year-old Michael Beers was intending to head to his home in West Des Moines from a bar in Des Moines but was so drunk, he got lost. Very lost. He was found in the ditch about four hours later near Roland, some 40 miles north of Des Moines. Foster describes Beers’ condition when he was located.”Very cold.” The property owners spotted the car in the ditch, got Beers inside and warmed him up. Beers was taken to a hospital for a check-up. It’s still to be determined what charges he may face.
