Blitzed Brit Busted in Barbie's Buggy

A British man has been banned from driving for three years after police pulled him over while driving a toy Barbie car while drunk.

Paul Hutton, 40, said he regrets the decision to use the toy - which can reach a top speed of 6.4 km/h - to drive to a friend's house after he had been drinking, Britain's Daily Mail newspaper reported.

The six-foot tall father of four admitted he had to be a contortionist to get into the toy and said he felt like a "complete twit."

Hutton told the newspaper he was rebuilding the toy car with his son, who was taking a car mechanics course. On April 4, he decided to take it for a spin to show a friend who lives less than half a kilometer away. Police pulled him over around 9 p.m.

The newspaper reported Essex Police initially gave Hutton a warning, but when Hutton ignored them and slowly pulled away from the officers, they arrested him.
