Police in Ballymena stopped a driver who allegedly drank so much they did not realise he had crashed into another car.
The shocking episode unfolded on Saturday night when officers came across a car "parked" diagonally at a petrol pump.
After giving a breath sample, the driver was found to be almost three times over the legal limit.
Posting on social media, a PSNI spokesperson said: "[This is] absolutely crazy considering the state of the ice on the roads tonight and the amount of pedestrian traffic in and around a petrol station.
"The driver had also crashed into a parked vehicle a few streets away and had left the scene totally unaware they had hit anything.
"The driver will be staying in police custody tonight to be interviewed in the morning."
