On Policing Fenland Facebook the officer said the driver was drunk and refused to provide a sample of breath at the roadside.

“He was arrested on suspicion of being unfit through drink or drugs, driving with no insurance and common assault (domestic violence related),” he wrote.

“The driver was taken to the police investigation centre where he refused once again to provide a sample of breath. We have given him a bed for the night and we will speak to him later.”
