The incident happened at about 7pm last night (Friday) when a police dog handler was driving an unmarked car with her two police dogs.

She reported that she has been struck by another vehicle and then added: "The driver of the other vehicle made some strange comments leading us to suspect he may have been under the influence of alcohol."

"Lo and behold, he gave a positive breath test and was arrested and taken to custody for a further breath test where he blew over twice the legal limit.

"He then spent some time in a cell reflecting on his actions and once sober enough he was charged to court where he will most likely face a driving ban and fines."
