Police Interceptors received reports of a silver vehicle travelling at speed on the A19.
Other drivers on the A19 suspected he was drink driving because of the way he was driving.
Or maybe it could be the fact the driver was hurling empty Stella cans out the window.
Police quickly responded to the driver on a A19 North bound carriage way at 20.15hrs.
Officers were able to quickly stop the vehicle safely near to the A689.
He blew four times over the legal limit and was taken in to police custody in Hartlepool.
