Subject: Drink driver caught out by footprints

Written By: Philip Eno on 03/06/10 at 10:42 am

A US man who claimed his car had been stolen after he crashed it into a snow drift was arrested after police followed his footsteps back to the bar where he'd been drinking.

The 42-year-old, of Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin, now faces up to three years in jail and a $10,000 fine is he is convicted with that police said was his fifth drink driving charge.

He rang police at 2.30am to say his car had been stolen from the town's Tapper's Bar where he had been drinking, reports the Sheboygan Press.

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, who later failed a field sobriety test, admitted that he had been driving the vehicle and lost control of it before crashing into the snow bank.

He said that he had gone back into the bar after the accident and ordered another pint of beer but only drank three-quarters of it.
