A suspected drink driver dodged a police breath test... by beating himself up.
Steven Andrews, 26, punched himself in the face and head-butted walls and doors at a police station after he was arrested.
Magistrates in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, heard that as a result it was impossible for officers to take a breath sample.
He had been pulled over suspected drink-driving and he staggered out of his car in front of officers.
The court heard that Andrews had been drinking because he was upset that his ex-girlfriend had sent him pictures of herself with another man.
Andrews, from Sutton-in-Ashfield, admitted refusing to give a breath sample.
He was banned from driving for three years and handed a supervision order.
