Drink driver caught out by footprints
A US man who claimed his car had been stolen after he crashed it into a snowdrift was arrested after police followed his footsteps back to the bar where he'd been drinking.
The 42-year-old rang police at 2.30am to say his car had been stolen from the bar where he had been drinking.
Police quickly discovered the car crashed into a snow bank about half a mile away from the bar - and then found footprints in the snow matching the man's boots leading back to the bar.
When questioned by police, the man admitted he had been driving the vehicle and lost control of it before crashing into the snow bank. He said he had gone back into the bar after the crash and ordered another pint of beer, but only drank three-quarters of it.
