A Florida office has been caught drunk on the job after his colleagues found him swerving down the high street.

Oscar Mayorga, 25, of the Apopka Police Department had to be pulled over when a local resident saw the police cruiser running stop signs and called the cops.

Fellow officers arrived and asked Mayorga to roll down the window, catching a whiff of booze when he complied.

Slurring his speech, Mayorga told the officers he was on his way to work, despite the fact that he’d already started his shift.

At first, he said he’d taken three benadryl, medication used to treat allergies and insomnia, two hours ago.

But he’d forgotten about the open beer can in the center cup holder which the other officers spotted.

‘Why would you take three benadryl knowing you had to work tonight?’ the officer asked him, according to Fox News.

He replied that he was trying to sleep, but his story wasn’t adding up.

Finally, he admitted to drinking three cans of beer and hopping into his police cruiser and driving down the road.

Mayorga’s blood-alcohol level registered at 0.391g/210L, reported The New York Post, nearly five times the legal limit.

He was placed on administrative leave which the authorities investigate further.
