A man was arrested after he led police on a high speed chase.
However, when he was stopped, the man claimed that he was not the driver of the car.
28-year-old Kyle Cooper of Accrington, England, was stopped after he had been involved in the car chase.
When questioned by officers, Cooper denied driving the car, claiming he was a passenger and refused a breathalyzer test on the road.
Officers were unable to locate the car keys, which supported the man’s claim that he was not the driver.
However, when he was taken into custody, officers observed that he was uncomfortable while sitting. After a subsequent search of his body, officers found the keys inside him.
Cooper, a father of one child, was also found to be almost two times the legal limit for alcohol. In court, Cooper was found guilty of driving drunk and driving without insurance among other driving offenses.
Cooper, who works as a forklift truck driver, had his driver’s license revoked and was disqualified from driving for three years.
He was also ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work. He was given a curfew and was ordered to pay a fine of £600 (1 pound = $1.62).
