Man Makes It Easy For Cops To Arrest Him

Associated Press

A man who drove to a Toronto police station to find out if he was sober enough to be behind the wheel was charged with drunken driving.

Norman Newmarch, 60, arrived at a police traffic division station on Toronto’s east end just after 8:30 a.m. Sunday. Unaware he was being watched by police, he tried to park and nudged a cruiser.

Police said Newmarch had driven to the station because he wanted to know if he had “slept it off through the night” and was fit to drive.
