Driver arrested - over the limit and over the hedge

An over-the-limit driver ended up over the hedge on Tuesday night (31 May) in Mid-Ulster after a police crew attempted to stop a vehicle that was being driven erratically.

A spokesperson for the Police of Service of Northern Ireland said:

“Our Armed Response Unit were on mobile patrol in Cookstown last night when they observed this vehicle driving all over the road. Rather than pull over for police, the driver then sped off and put the car into a field on Clare Lane, Cookstown.

“Our colleagues from the Fire Service and Ambulance Service also had to attend. Fortunately, no other people were injured from this.

“The driver blew three times over the alcohol limit at the roadside and was arrested.

“This selfish act has taken several emergency crews to deal with and could have ended much worse.”
