HAARLEM, NETHERLANDS (BNO NEWS) — A man in the western Netherlands was so drunk that he filled his pants, not a jerrycan, with fuel at a gas station, police said on Thursday.

The 46-year-old driver at a gas station in the city of Haarlem on Wednesday tried to fill his jerrycan with fuel, but was apparently not successful and instead filled his pants with the fuel. A witness who saw the incident warned police.

Police officers who arrived at the scene arrested the man for driving under the influence and took away his driving license. A breathalyzer revealed he had consumed three times the legal limit of alcohol for driving.

He was released later that afternoon and will face the charges at a later date.
