Officers caught a drink driver after they left their fog lights on.
Sgt Chris Harris was on patrol on the evening of Sunday, December 15, when he spotted a car with its front fog lights on in Queens Road, Attleborough.
The officer found that the man, 35, was over the limit, had no insurance or a driving license.
On Twitter Breckland Police said: "Sgt Harris from Thetford was out on mobile patrols last night.
"A stop of a driver in Attleborough for having front fog lights on resulted in an arrest for drink driving, no insurance and driving without a valid licence."
The driver is set to appear before Norwich magistrates on Tuesday, December 17.
