If you do not want the coroner to take you away, call the coroner to take you home.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones is offering free rides from midnight Tuesday to 4 a.m. Wednesday for anyone celebrating New Year’s Eve with alcohol.

“I’d rather transport them sitting up instead of lying down,” said Jones, who is not officially working the holiday. “I’ve rented a 15-passenger van out of my own pocket,” Jones said.

Anyone needing a ride home in Bibb County is urged to call 256-6716.
