Police have arrested a driver who was almost five times over the limit.
He blew 159mg when breathalised - the legal limit for alcohol is 35mg.
The man was pulled over at Corton, near Lowestoft last night, after police received a call about his manner of driving.
“Tip off about a driver under the influence,” one traffic cop tweeted. “Arrested for drink and disqualified driving after the same offence in January.”
A colleague added: “Unfortunately you have read that correct, 159ugs. Over 4.5 times the limit. Totally unacceptable, fortunate no body was hurt.”
The arrest came less than a week after police launched their annual summer campaign against drink and drug driving.
