EASTLAKE, Ohio (AP) - Police in northeast Ohio say an off-duty pizza delivery driver put the company’s sign on his car roof and pretended to be on the job to avoid being stopped for drunken driving.

But it didn’t work. Police in Eastlake, east of Cleveland, stopped 29-year-old Michael Christian earlier this week after another motorist reported that he was weaving on the road. Christian couldn’t finish the field sobriety test and was arrested.

Det. Lt. Robert Gonzalez of the Eastlake Police Department tells WJW-TV (http://bit.ly/1kiX62o ) that the man admitted that he had done it before, putting the pizza sign on his car when he wasn’t working so he could drive drunk without police pulling him over.

He’s due in court next week. No attorney information was immediately available.
