[April 20, 2010]  LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Drunk in a bar and can't get out, who you gonna call? Police. That's what Todd Fitzwater did in Lexington.

WLEX-TV reported Fitzwater called 911 Thursday and said he'd gotten drunk and passed out at Todd's Karaoke Bar the night before, awakened and had a few more - then couldn't get out of the bar, which was closed.

Officers tapped on the door Thursday afternoon to guide the 45-year-old Fitzwater to it so he could let them in to help him.

The bar owner said Fitzwater is a "regular" who lives nearby. The barkeep stayed with him until 7:30 a.m. Thursday, then left figuring Fitzwater would eventually let himself out and go home.
