Drunken driver smart to stop, stupid to sleep

Drunken driver smart to stop, stupid to sleep

A man received a rude awakening after taking a drunken nap in his car in Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet town on Tuesday.

Police said the man had hopped into his car after leaving a club drunk, but on the way home apparently thought twice about driving and pulled over to take a nap.

As the man slept it off, someone got into the car and stole an iPad, a phone and $100 without stirring the drunken owner.

When the man finally awoke, he noticed his missing property and filed a complaint to police, but – given that he was passed out cold – was unable to identify a suspect. KOH SANTEPHEAP
