Officers arrived and woke up the driver who police said was unsteady on his feet and had a strong odour of alcohol on his breath.

“He told officers he wanted food and drove to the location,” police said.

After the man was arrested, police said breath tests at the station revealed he had twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system.
