PIC: Gardaí stop a driver with an open bottle of wine in the cupholder
You don't see this every day.
This weekend, the Naas Roads Policing unit stopped a driver who was "literally drinking and driving" — with an open bottle of wine in the car.
A photo shared by the Gardaí on Twitter shows that the occupant of the car had a bottle of wine, being kept inside a coffee cup, which was being kept in the cupholder.
Gardaí confirmed that the driver was arrested and charged and will appear in court "soon".
