And finally… fruity

A shocked motorist protested his innocence after failing a roadside breathalyser test because he ate a durian.

The notoriously stinky fruit apparently registered a false positive for alcohol, and the man was cleared after submitting a blood sample.

Police in the Chinese province of Jiangsu have now warned other motorists against eating durian while driving, BBC News reports.

In a video published online, police officers demonstrated how they failed breath tests in the first couple of minutes after eating the fruit.
