Plaistow, New Hampshire (The Weekly Vice) - Barry Short, a 22-year-old Amesbury, Massachusetts man was charged with drunk driving after he allegedly passed a patrol car in a vehicle that was missing a wheel.

According to Plaistow police, an officer was working at a traffic stop when he reportedly heard a loud noise, followed by the strange site of a car driving by slowly with its rear tire missing.
