Firstly, police spotted a stolen car in Ripley at around 8.15pm

Then just minutes later, officers in North East Derbyshire stumbled across a drunken driver in Arkwright town.
Arkwright Town. Follow this Passat as driver can't take corners without drifting to the opposite side of the road. Stopped to find him drunk, blows 85, limit 35. Arrested. Insurance on one of those magical 'mates traders policies'. #Fatal4 #DontDrinkDrive #Seized pic.twitter.com/cEstunqHiK— Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit (@DerbyshireRPU) October 6, 2019
