From The Daily Telegraph

TRAPPED after flipping his car while drunk driving, a man opened another beer as he waited to be rescued.

Paul Nigel Sneddon, 47, pleaded guilty to careless driving and drunken driving in a district court in the North Island city of Palmerston North, the Dominion Post newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Sneddon failed to take a corner on June 1, crashed through a wooden barrier, and flipped his car onto its roof.

The newspaper quoted defence lawyer Peter Young as telling the court when Sneddon found he could not open the doors, ``he had nothing else to do at that point, so he had another beer''.

When police found him trapped in the vehicle his breath-alcohol level was 1,191 micrograms - nearly three times the legal limit of 400 micrograms.

Prosecutor police Sergeant Ollie Outtrim told the court Sneddon went on a drinking bender after losing his job at a bakery.
I'm against drunk driving and all, but my first thought when I read this was "hell yea!" :mrgreen:
