A GLOUCESTERSHIRE man who blew four times the legal drink drive limit was arrested after he was breathalysed on the side of the M50 motorway on Tuesday morning (November 8).
Police were called to junction one of the motorway near Tewkesbury at 11.50am after a concerned member of the public had seen a vehicle within a ditch on the grass verge.
Roads Policing officers found the driver asleep at the wheel and conducted a breath test due to suspicions that he was intoxicated.
He blew a reading of 148 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath – with the legal limit being 35 micrograms, police said.
The driver of the car, a 36-year-old man from Gloucester, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of driving whilst under the influence of alcohol.
He remains in police custody at this time.
