Police allege a man showed up to the Pickering police station drunk to complain about an earlier arrest for public drunkenness.

Durham Regional Police responded to a report of a drunk man, 42 of Ajax, who would not leave a Brock St. and Rossland Rd. restaurant early in the morning of Feb. 20. The officers wrote the man a ticket for public drunkenness and failure to leave when directed. Police did not identify the man.

They then loaded the man into their cruiser and escorted him home. He was left in the care of his mother. Some time later the man appeared in the lobby of the Durham Police West Division Headquarters at 1710 Kingston Rd.

He demanded to speak to a supervisor about his earlier arrest. When talking with officers, they noticed the man still exhibited signs of intoxication. They demanded a breath sample when they learned he had driven himself to the station.

He failed the breath test and was arrested a second time for impaired driving. His license has been suspended for 90 days and his car will spend the next 30 days in lock up.
