A man was arrested on a charge of drunk driving after allegedly driving drunk and trying to inflate a busted tire with a vacuum cleaner, police in the United Kingdom said.
Now, 21-year-old Mateusz Biazik of Doncaster, has been banned from driving for the next 18 months after being convicted of drunk driving.
According to the police investigation, Biazik and a group of his friends were driving home after a night of drinking. With only a few miles to go, the driver became sleepy and asked Biazik to take the wheel.
Biazik, who thought that his blood alcohol content was below the legal limit, agreed to drive the car home. After driving a few minutes, the car’s tires deflated.
Biazik stopped at a service station, where he tried to inflate the tires with a vacuum cleaner. A worker watched in disbelief as Biazik tried to use a water hose to inflate his tires.
When the concerned worker realized that Biazik was drunk, he called the police. In addition to being banned from driving, Biazik was ordered to pay 380 pounds ($590) in court fees.
