Man looking for casino gets detox stay

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - September 20, 2011

The Lincoln Journal Star reports the 21-year-old man approached the University of Nebraska-Lincoln police station front desk after a college football game Saturday night. He left after a staffer told him it was a police station but returned a few minutes later.

That's when an officer administered a blood alcohol test, which registered at .273 percent - more than triple the state's legal driving limit.

Police took him into protective custody while he sobered up. A police sergeant said the man had not committed a crime and was not arrested.
