A Swiss man caught drink driving without a licence seems set in his errant ways: When responding to a summons over the incident he drove to the police station, drunk.
Police in the central Swiss city of Lucerne pulled the 61-year-old man over last Sunday, discovering that he was drunk and had already lost his licence after previously driving under the influence.
   
But responding on Thursday to a police summons over the incident, he appeared unrepentant.
   
He drove to the station with a high level of alcohol in his blood, police said in a statement, adding that they had confiscated his vehicle.
