ANAHEIM, Calif. (KTLA) – A man was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in Anaheim after he struck a sign and kept driving with it on his car Saturday night, the Anaheim Police Department said.

The car struck the sign on a freeway off-ramp and “kept driving with its new hood ornament,” the department quipped in an Instagram post.

The driver kept going until he was contacted by officers and taken into custody. Police said Saturday’s DUI arrest was the driver’s fourth in the past ten years.

Last night this car struck a sign on the freeway off ramp and kept driving with its new hood ornament until officers contacted him. It was the driver’s fourth DUI in ten years. Maybe this is the SIGN they’ve been looking for to stop drinking and driving. #AlexCanIGetJailFor200 #IMadeTheAnaheimpdInstagram #Dui #drunkdriver #LookingForASign #hoodornament #JailAgain #arrest #photography
