A farmer has been banned from driving after he drove five miles with just three wheels on his tractor before passing out.
Drunk Marcin Pietrowski, 39, was arrested when police in Janow, Poland, found him fast asleep in a ditch beside a dirt road leading to his farm.
“We had lots of calls from other drivers saying he could barely steer the vehicle,” said a police spokesman.
“When we got there, he’d stopped the tractor and had fallen out of the cab where he passed out,” they added.
Shamefaced Marcin – now facing a hefty fine or jail – told police: “I’d had a few and needed to get home but I’d completely forgotten there were only three wheels on that tractor.”
