Oregon man mistakes police station for casino

LINCOLN, NE (AP) -

An Oregon man has been sent to detox after he mistook a Lincoln police station for a casino.

Sgt. John Backer told the Lincoln Journal Star (http://bit.ly/nl9B22 ) the 21-year-old man was turned away after wandering into the University of Nebraska-Lincoln police station Saturday night and asking about blackjack chips.

The man came back a few minutes later and officers administered a blood-alcohol test. Backer says the man blew a .273 and was sent to detox. His name was not released.

No charges were filed.
