SPRINGFIELD, Vt. (CBS/AP) Drunk driving is serious business, and one Timothy Carney of Sudbury, Massachusetts leaves little doubt that he's got a serious problem.

The 42-year-old Carney was on his way to a Springfield, Vt. prison to serve a two-day sentence for driving under the influence. Carney showed up at the prison -- drove himself to the prison -- and just maybe you know where he, and this story, are headed.

Vermont State Police say when Carney arrived at the state correctional facility to do time for the first crime, staffers determined that he was DUA: drunk upon arrival.

And when they realized that Carney had, in fact, driven himself there, they called in the authorities.

Police say Carney was processed for a second drunk driving offense, and then released back to the custody of the Department of Corrections...which is where he was supposed to be in the first place.

Carney is due to appear in court later this month on the latest charge.

Any volunteers to be his designated driver?
