Drink driver blames beer-battered fish lunch



A man who was caught drink-driving told police that the reason his breath smelled of booze was because of the beer-battered fish he'd had for lunch.

John Przybyla, 76, was pulled over in Wisconsin, USA, way back in 2014, and was convicted on Monday.

Fox News reports that it's his 10th charge of drink driving.

The Metro reports that Przybyla was not actually over the legal limit of 0.08%, but he was still arrested because he tested above a special limit of 0.02% he had been given after being caught drink-driving the nine times before.

Officers pulled him over for swerving across the centre line with a broken tail light, and his blood alcohol level was .062.

He is still yet to be sentenced but could receive 12 years in jail, the paper adds.
