Suspected Drunk Driver Nearly Sets Car On Fire

Just after 3am, city police noticed a vehicle parked in a lot off Waterloo where it looked like something was seriously wrong. The vehicle was running and had smoke pouring from the hood area. 

Taking a closer look, they found the driver passed out at the wheel with his foot on the accelerator, causing the vehicle to over-rev and overheat.

He was taken to the drunk tank for the night and has a future court date for DUI and refusing a breathalyzer.
