A man’s dream to become a police employee has been dashed after showing up drunk to his interview at the police station, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Manchester police said that they have arrested 48-year-old Andrew Jackson, after being accused of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Jackson has been charged with one count of drunk driving.

Jackson of Barlow Moor Road, appeared in court, where he pleaded guilty to drunk driving. A judge has banned Jackson from driving for a year, and he was ordered to pay a fine of $250.

According to the criminal complaint, Jackson applied for a job at the Greater Manchester Police. When he arrived for his interview, the person in charge of hiring new employee, smelled alcohol on Jackson’s breath.

The police worker then continued with the interview for an hour. Since Jackson’s breath continued to smell of alcohol, the police worker called a traffic officer to question him.

Jackson admitted that he shared a bottle of wine with his wife.

He was given a breathalyzer, which showed that he was above the legal limit for driving. Jackson’s job application was rejected.
