A man who was driving drunk, made sure that police caught up with his drunken driving, according to press reports.

The 47-year-old drunken man, who was driving a suspected stolen car, unknowingly dialed 911 on Tuesday night, while his cell phone was in his pocket, prompting a brief police chase in Tacoma, Washington.

Dispatchers received the first 911 call around 11:30 p.m., and could hear a woman screaming and a man telling her to stop. After continuing to hear the sounds of a struggle inside the car, police traced the phone call and responded to the 4300 block of South D Street, where officers saw a car running a red light.

The officers tried to stop the vehicle. The driver stopped briefly, and a woman got out and ran. The man continued driving, refusing to stop for police.

The man finally stopped in the 5000 block of Pacific Avenue and fled on foot. A police K-9 was unable
to locate the suspect. The suspected stolen vehicle was registered in Vancouver, and contained several shaved keys, leading police to believe it was stolen.

About 7:00 a.m., the same cellphone dialed 911 again and police were able to trace the call to the 4800 block of South Wilkeson Street, where an intoxicated couple was found sitting inside a different vehicle.

The man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and violation of a no-contact order. The woman was arrested for outstanding warrants.

Police said the man was drunk and did not realize that his cellphone had dialed 911 twice.
