Police were able to run after him and he denied being drunk and driving the car he just left. After realizing that he has no way out, the Chinese man pulled grass from the road side and ate it.
“The driver probably wanted to change his blood alcohol level by eating grass,” the police said. “We kept telling him, don’t eat grass. He didn’t listen, he didn’t stop pulling or eating the grass. It’s likely some was swallowed and some he spat out.”
In the end, the officials took the man to a hospital for a blood test that he failed.
Chinese online users mocked and made fun of the video that went viral, with one joked by saying that the man’s zodiac must be a cow.
Another online user said that apart from getting fined for drunk driving, the man could also get charged for destroying and eating protected grass.
