Authorities say a Northern California man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after he drove to the California Highway Patrol office to report a crash he had been involved in over the weekend.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat newspaper reports an officer who spoke to Donald Gendron in the station's lobby said he smelled strongly of alcohol. The CHP says in a statement Gendron's eyes were red and watery.

Gendron told officers he had driven himself to the CHP office in Corte Madera. He was booked into Marin County jail after failing a sobriety test. There was no publicly listed phone number for Gendron.
