The authorities there tested him on the breathalyzer, which is a device for testing blood alcohol content from breath. He was found to have failed that test.

The Police said that a child, of age 3, from one of the other cars, was rushed to the nearby hospital to be checked in ‘as a precaution’.

One of the witnesses told The Sun, “Ant looked like his world had just ended.”

A 23-year-old Amy Cassie told the Mirror,“Ant seemed furious after crashing the car and was shouting at his mum who was also in the car. She was trying to get him to calm down.”

She added, “The police took him to the back of the police car to remove him from the situation. Ant and his mum didn’t seem to have any injuries, but the mum in the green car had split her lip and the side of her face was very red.”
