The team added he was drink driving and said he ‘will be spending a few hours’ in the Shepcote Lane custody suite.

The post said the nice weather is not an excuse for drink driving, adding: "It doesn’t mean you can open a few tinnys and then get behind the wheel and drive. This journey could have ended very badly.”
