On Thursday around 12:30 p.m., North Vancouver officers were alerted to an "erratic driver" who had crashed into a parked car in the area of Capilano Road and Montroyal Boulevard.
The man failed a breathalyzer test, prompting officers to seize his drivers licence and prohibit him from driving for 90 days.

"This guy should probably never go to Vegas," said Sgt. Peter DeVries in a news release. "Its unbelievable. And sure, there is something comical about it but that humour has to pass quickly.
