Good Samaritan arrested for drunk driving

A German man was arrested for drunk driving after he mistook a police spot check for a breakdown and stopped to help. Officers inspecting a car by the roadside suspected the 37-year-old passing motorist was under the influence of alcohol when he lurched from his vehicle to offer assistance, reports Reuters.

“Obviously his optical assessment of the situation as he drove past was that this was a vehicle breakdown,” the police said in a statement. The man was arrested and banned from driving.
