'Drink driver' pulled herself over

Police car lights - not to be confused with a roller skating rink /Rex
A US drink driver allegedly pulled herself over - after mistaking a roller skating rink's flashing sign for police car lights.
Police say Nicole Scott, 27, stopped her car after spotting lights from the Skate World theme park in Sandusky, Ohio, in her rear view mirror.
But she got stuck in a snowdrift by the side of the road and a passerby, who stopped to offer help, called police after noticing she seemed intoxicated.
Police say that Scott told the passerby she had thought the flashing lights from Skate World's sign were police lights, reports the Sandusky Register.
Scott denied being the driver of the vehicle to police and claimed her friend had been driving but had run off.
Officers claimed she told them the friend's name was variously Ray, Samantha, Courtney and finally Brittany.
She refused a sobriety test but police say they found a half-full bottle of beer in the car and only one set of footprints near the vehicle.
They also claim Scott had trouble walking when she left the vehicle and had to be helped to a waiting police cruiser.
She was arrested and charged with drink driving and having an open container in a vehicle.
