Drunk Driver Delivers Himself To The Mounties Lawn...

A Saskatchewan Mountie who specializes in drunk driving cases took his work home with him recently when an allegedly drunk driver got stuck on his lawn.

The off-duty RCMP constable was relaxing at home in Yorkton about 9 p.m on Tuesday when he heard a disturbance outside, the RCMP said Thursday.

He discovered a 1996 Ford station wagon that had been driven on to his lawn was stuck in the snow. The driver was attempting to get the car out of the yard, but without much success.

According to the RCMP, the driver was highly intoxicated and there was open liquor in the car.

The officer — a qualified breath test technician who specializes in impaired driving investigations and arrests about two dozen drunk drivers every year — took the driver into custody and transported him to the Yorkton detachment. A breath test showed the man's blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit, police said.

The Yorkton man, 55, spent the night in RCMP cells. Charges are pending, police said.
