Police stopped a 1992 purple Lexus. The driver failed to provide officers with a valid driver's licence. Further investigation revealed he had been drinking, said police.
He failed a roadside breath test. He was arrested and taken to police headquarters, where additional breath tests revealed he was impaired by more than twice the legal limit.
