    Driver with pint of San Miguel on dashboard ‘too drunk’ for breath test

    Stunned police pulled over man driving erratically who had a pint of San Miguel perched on his dashboard.

    The reckless 31-year-old was 'too drunk' to take a breath-test on the roadside and was arrested on suspicion of drug and driving offences.

    They stopped the van in Kirkby, Merseyside, at around 10.40pm on Monday, the Liverpool Echo reports.

    Incredibly officers found a half-drunk pint of beer in a glass leaning up against the vehicle's windscreen.

    After a search they soon also discovered he was in possession of cocaine.

    They confirmed the driver was "too drunk" to provide a breath analysis and was arrested at the scene.

    The full post on Twitter said: "Any idea what made us stop this one? Driver was too drunk to provide and he's been arrested and is now in custody. Another selfish drink driver off the roads."
