A young man ended up behind bars after running himself over with a car in the driveway of his home, according to police in Canada.

Scugog police said that they have arrested the 25-year-old man, who was not identified, after being accused of driving under the influence of alcohol.

The man has been charged with impaired driving and driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit.

According to the police investigation, the man was drunk when he went to drive his car out of the driveway of his home. He left the driver side door open and fell out of the car as it was moving.

The car then ran him over and crashed into two mail boxes. The man suffered serious injuries and was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released before being arrested.
