New Delhi, June 16 (ANI): Here’s a lesson for those who think drinking water after a bender can spare you a ticket: A drunk driver tried to fool police by guzzling three bottles of water to cover up alcohol level in his blood and on his breath.

Yu had been driving back to Shaoxing, Zhejiang province, and reached the suburbs when his car began forming an S on the expressway.

Cops tried to pull him over but Yu stayed inside the car and kept gulping litres of water, reports the China Daily.

It was only after he opened the door to urinate was he taken into custody and tested for DUI, following which police discovered high levels of alcohol in his blood.

Yu was later slapped with a fine and had his driving license temporarily seized. (ANI)
