Greater Manchester Police arrested two separate drug drivers in one night – because they literally weren’t the brightest.
They were both stopped by police after being spotted driving cars with defective lights.
In the early hours of this morning, Sunday 8 August, team XT18 were in the Halliwell Road area where they stopped their first suspect, the driver of a Toyota Corolla with a defective light.
Officers decided to conduct a roadside drug test on the driver, who was then arrested on suspicion of drug driving.
Back on the road, having just finished in custody with the Toyota driver, team XT18 then stopped another vehicle with a defective light.
Officers spotted the VW Polo on Bolton Road and carried out a drug test on the driver.
The force tweeted that, “the driver admitted to only having just smoked a joint”, and a drug test showed a positive result of cannabis in the motorist’s system.
The driver was then taken into custody by officers.
