Man allegedly drove to police station while drunk to file accident report

State police say a 31-year-old Gonzales man is accused of driving to Troop A headquarters while drunk to file an accident report.

Online booking records indicate that Patrick Ruffner remains in the East Baton Rouge Parish jail Monday, his bond set at $1,000.

It was not clear whether he has an attorney.

Trooper Jared Sandifer says Ruffner called state police Saturday, saying he had been in a hit-and-run crash on Interstate 10 in Baton Rouge. He was told to come to Troop A to fill out a crash report.

He says that when Ruffner got out of his SUV, a trooper smelled alcohol and gave him a field sobriety test and a breath test.

Sandifer says that Ruffner was booked with driving on a suspended license and with first-offense DWI.
