Drunk driver tries to cross border with two flat tyres
A 76 year old drunk driver was caught by customs officers at Basel-Weil am Rhein as he drove into Switzerland from Germany with two flat tires.
Guards were alerted to his arrival by the clanking noise the car was making.
Despite being flagged down to stop at the border, the elderly driver kept going and guards chased him in their car.
They stopped him a few hundred meters later. He man told them he thought the car was running strangely after he hit a curb – but he thought he could make it home.
He was breathalyzed and found to be over the limit.
