SARNIA, Ont. -- A drunk driver who drove up to a police officer and asked "what's up" has been fined $1,300 in Sarnia court.

Garnet William Robinson, 28, of Sarnia, pleaded guilty to driving impaired at Kettle Point, Ont.

The officer had stopped to look at the awkwardly parked vehicle driven by Robinson, who then drove the short distance to the cop to make the "what's up" comment.

Robinson was drunk and does not recall all of the comments attributed to him, defence lawyer Terry Brandon said.

Robinson's speech was slurred and he was unsteady on his feet when he got out of the vehicle.

Robinson told the officer he had downed three to four beers.

Breath tests showed Robinson's blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

A one-year driving ban was imposed along with the fine.
