A 23-year-old Imperial man was arrested for DWI after driving to the Arnold Police Station in search of consolation.
The man drove to the back of the station, where only police vehicles are allowed, and asked to speak to an officer, said Maj. Nick McBroom of the Arnold Police Department.
"He told officers he and his girlfriend just broke up and that he needed someone to talk to," McBroom said. "Officers smelled heavy alcohol on his breath."
Police took the man into custody after conducting field sobriety tests, but he would not submit to a breath test. Following booking, he was taken St. Anthony's Medical Center for making suicidal statements.
