 A PCSO then reported seeing him drive partially down a driveway causing damage to a fence post.

Officers attended and he was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst unfit through drink, failing to provide a specimen of breath, and driving whilst under the influence of a controlled drug.

He remains in custody at this time.
