Hats off to this guy. A lot of people drunk drive, get away with it and then do it again the next weekend. It’s an epidemic. But this guy. No, Sean McCullough is a drunken man of honor. Similar to NCAA schools who break the rules, McCullough opted to go with the self-inflicted punishment route instead and drove himself directly to the police station.
And it’s not like our boy McCullough here was just tipsy after having a few — he was HAMMERED, telling police he consumed “12 to 14 beers.”
“The officer says, ‘Do you understand you’re in the parking lot of a police station?’ and McCullough says, ‘Yeah, I wanted to be in a safe place,’” Chitwood recalled.
Why McCullough thought driving to the police station instead of just staying where he was is beyond me, but I’ve never been as honest a man as McCullough was in this moment, so who am I to judge.
Shortly before 4 a.m. on Wednesday, McCullough, 44, of Havertown, was driving through Upper Darby when he approached the township police station on West Chester Pike and decided to pull into the parking lot designated for police officers, Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said.
An Upper Darby officer watched on surveillance cameras as McCullough drove around the entrance gates to the lot, into the exit lane, onto the grass, and then over a sidewalk before he parked his 2008 Ford station wagon “right there with the police cars,” Chitwood said.
McCullough, predictably, has two prior DUI arrests from the 90’s – one in 1994 and one in 1996. McCullough is free on $10,000 bail. His first court date is scheduled for August 28.
