RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - It isn’t every day that a suspected drunk driver delivers himself to jail, but it did happen early Wednesday morning in Rapid City.

As a police officer was pulling into the Pennington County Jail booking area off of Saint Joseph Street, another car scooted in just behind the officer, barely getting past the gate before it closed.

According to a release from the Rapid City Police Department, the driver got out of his car and told the officer he needed help with the damage to the front of the vehicle.

The driver, 19-year-old Jyles Salomon of Allen, was arrested for driving under the influence.
