Police arrested a man on St Peter's Road, in Huntingdon, on Sunday evening after a member of the public reported seeing him bouncing up kerbs.

The Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Policing Unit arrested the 33-year-old man on October 31 at 5pm and breathalysed him. 

In a tweet, BCH Road Policing Unit, officers said: “We found the vehicle on the move and stopped the driver thankfully/ He blew 139ug roadside.” 

The reading of 139 on a roadside breath test is just under four times the legal limit for driving a car.

The man has now been charged with drink driving and will appear in court next month.
