A man banned from getting behind the wheel due to drunk driving convictions was caught driving his ATV while wasted on Thursday.

A man banned from getting behind the wheel due to drunk driving convictions was caught driving his ATV while wasted on Thursday.

The RCMP received calls about a possible drunk man driving on someone’s property on an ATV near Pilot Mountain early that morning.

The police soon found a 45-year-old sitting on his ATV with the engine running.

The man, a Pilot Mountain resident, was brought back to the RCMP detachment.

He was four times over the legal limit for blood-alcohol levels, according to a breathalyzer test.

And it turns out he is banned from driving regular vehicles across Canada.

He was kept in the drunk tank until he was sober.

He was charged with impaired care and control of a motor vehicle.

His name was not released pending his first court appearance. (James Munson)
