Drunk driver has a beer after crash
Thursday 24 June 2010
A drunken driver who was trapped after flipping his car opened another beer as he waited to be rescued.
Paul Sneddon, 47, admitted drunken driving in a district court in Palmerston North. He had crashed through a barrier after failing to take a corner, and his car flipped on to its roof.
His lawyer told the court that when Sneddon found he was trapped "he had nothing else to do at that point, so he had another beer". Police officers said when they asked him how much he had drunk, he replied: "Plenty. I've been drinking for four days straight."
