ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Authorities say an Albuquerque man has been arrested for drunken driving — after he called police on himself.

KRQE-TV reports that Antonio Candelaria recently was arrested when officers found him drunk in his driveway and lying on the ground with his foot stuck in his motorcycle.

Police say the 50-year-old had called police for help after getting his foot stuck.

According to police, Candelaria's breath test results came out above .16, which is twice the legal limit in New Mexico.

Court records showed that Candelaria had a long list of DWI arrests and a handful of convictions.

It was unclear if Candelaria had an attorney.
