Gardaí then took the driver to Roscommon Garda Station where he was breathalysed over an hour later, according to the timestamp on the analysis readout.
Despite the gap in time from when he was pulled over, the driver still blew a staggering 11 times the legal drink-drive limit, according to gardaí, who posted details of the stop on Twitter.
They added that the driver is now due in court.
