This happened to an Englishman in France who was totally drunk.
A French police officer stops his car and asks the gentleman if he has been drinking.
With great difficulty, the Englishman admits that he has been drinking all day, that his daughter got married in the morning to a French man and that he drank champagne and a few bottles of wine at the reception and quite a few glasses of single malt thereafter.
Quite upset, the police officer proceeds to alcotest (breath test) him, which he fails and asks the Englishman if he knows under French Law why he has just been arrested.
The Englishman answers With humour: No, I actually do not know! Do you know that this is a British car and that my wife is the driver…on the other side of the car???
