Driver, take me to…the drunk tank?

(Newswatch Group/File)

BROCKVILLE – A Brockville-area man learned the hard way that you may want to know where you’re going before hailing a cab.

The man, 32, spent a night in the drunk tank yesterday (Dec. 27) after taking a taxi, but he was so drunk he couldn’t remember where he wanted to be dropped off, police said.

Instead, the cabbie drove him to the police station, where he was arrested and charged with public intoxication.

The arrest came after there was some “confusion” while officers were asking the man questions.

Brockville police said the man was released after he sobered up.
