A 24-year-old Central Otago man has been snapped by police for riding drunk on a motorised chilly bin.
Officers caught the man hooning around a mall carpack. After pulling him up and breathalysing him they found that he was under the influenence.
In court yesterday, the man admitted to being under the influence of alcohol and said he thought at the time it was just harmless fun as it clearly wasn't a registered, warranted thing like a motor vehicle.
He was convicted with a $500 fine but no driving disqualification was given.
