A drunken-driving was arrested in California and it took a surprising turn after it was found that the suspect was driving a car that was warning against drunken driving.
According to California Highway Patrol's Oakland bureau, the driver was weaving across Interstate 80 lanes at approx. 4 a.m. on Sunday, February 24.
The advertisement, which was on top of the vehicle, was from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The sign read, "I should probably get a ride home" (with "probably" crossed off). The sign adds, "Buzzed driving is drunk driving."

Car weaving in 3 lanes on I-80. Driver arrested for going way over the legal limit. Ironic for someone driving drunk with a sign encouraging not to drink & drive

Officer Herman Baza told Bay City News that the alcohol limit of the driver, whose name and identity have not been disclosed, was crossed.
It's a good message, but he's not necessarily the best role model. He was weaving all over the place. We caught him early enough that we prevented him from crashing.
The highway safety administration pays people to display anti-drunk driving signs.
