Australian man arrested for drunk-driving on beer cooler

Police spotted the man riding a motorised cooler – known in Australia as an esky – on a road in Perth about 8pm on Friday night. He was found to be under the influence of alcohol.

Police said the vehicle was potentially dangerous and that the cooler contained alcohol.

“This motor vehicle would only be able to travel at very low speeds, the lighting devices on said vehicle would be negligible and make it very difficult for other motorists to see,” police said in a statement.
