March 19 (UPI) -- A Florida man chose to go against the grain on St. Patrick's Day by attempting to get himself locked up after apparently having one too many.

Jackie Eugene Mayo tried to turn himself in at Marion County Jail on Monday on an outstanding warrant for a probation violation on a DUI arrest, but he had a tough time finding his way in.

According to the Ocala Star Banner, “Mayo made his way to the booking entrance of the jail and a corrections officer tried to talk with him,” but the 32-year-old man “began yelling and screaming.”

Prior to finding the entrance, Mayo had been banging on the doors of the video visitation building and “staggering around the property.”

According to the arrest report from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Mayo smelled like alcohol.

When a sheriff’s deputy arrived on the scene, Mayo was arrested for battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest without violence and disorderly intoxication. He was also booked on the original probation violation charge and was being held at the jail without bond.
