TORONTO - TORONTO — If Vadym Gulenko was looking for a place to sleep for the night, he certainly got it.

York Regional Police allege the 30-year-old Aurora, Ont., man drove drunk to one of their stations Monday, then demanded a place to stay overnight.

An officer saw a Honda Civic pull into the Rutherford Rd. station in Vaughan, Ont., around 11:30 p.m.

"The car pulled into the visitor parking area and the lone male occupant entered the police station through the front doors," said a police statement. "Once inside, the man became belligerent, demanding that officers provide him with a place to sleep for the night."

Gulenko was administered a breath test and allegedly blew over twice the legal limit. He was held in police custody overnight.

Gulenko is charged with impaired driving and operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol level over 80 mg. He is scheduled to appear in court April 3.
