A police spokesman said: "On a serious note, the driver of this vehicle was arrested after providing an alcohol reading of almost 4 times the legal limit on Manvers Way, Wath."He will be staying with us for breakfast before being charged and sent to court, then a hefty bill for the recovery and repairs to the damaged signs."
