Lancashire Police have arrested a man for cutting one of his door mirrors while driving under the influence of nearly double the legal alcohol limit.
A drunk man overtook a police dog van in Lancaster and crashed into a wing mirror.
They were arrested and blew 62 people in custody, though the legal limit is 35.
Luckily, both dogs in the van were undisturbed by the crash and slept the entire time.
The dangerous driver was just one of 73 people arrested in the final week of the police’s drink and drug driving campaign, bringing the total to 298.
Police also arrested the driver who was driving the M6 at 120 mph in bad weather.
The driver stopped and tested positive for drugs. He was also driving with two bald tires and one inflated and about to burst.
Another man sipped a can of beer before getting into his car. He was spotted on an M6 crossing the lane. He was stopped and blew 58 on the side of the road.
One driver was stopped on Preston’s Blackpool Road and was found to be driving under the influence of cannabis.
I also couldn’t drive or travel without insurance.
Another driver was arrested after testing positive for both cocaine and cannabis. He was already arrested in early December for the same crime.
A police spokesperson said, “How was your Christmas?
“But some people have chosen to spend a celebratory vacation in our cell after being arrested for drinking or using drugs, which is quite baffling, to be honest.
The arrest was made as part of our Christmas drink and drug promotion campaign. A total of 298 people have been arrested since the campaign began on his November 21st.

“You can save a life or prevent someone from being seriously injured. Use 101 or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or Crimestoppers-uk.org.
