April 9, 2013 at 5:06 PM

SALT LAKE CITY, April 9 (UPI) -- Police in Utah allege a man showed up at a Utah state trooper's home drunk to complain about his being turned in for drunken driving last year.

Salt Lake City police said Gordon Tye Bell, 37, was allegedly drunk and had a beer in his hand when he showed up about 7 p.m. Sunday at the home of a neighbor who is a Utah Highway Patrol trooper, the Deseret News in Salt Lake City reported Tuesday.

Police said the neighbor had called 911 last year to say he suspected Bell of driving while intoxicated.

Members of the trooper's family called the on-duty officer, who rushed home. Police said Bell tried to walk away when the trooper told him police were on the way and the trooper ended up taking Bell into custody himself while waiting for city police.

Bell was arrested on suspicion of witness tampering, trespassing, public intoxication and resisting arrest.
