BLAINE, Wash. - Police say he drove three vehicles while drunk and crashed two of them - all in the same night.

Police first responded to a crash site where they found an abandoned truck and trailer in the 3300 block of Sweet Road. The vehicle had hit a utility pole.

As officers began their investigation they came across a second crash site just up the road. A red BMW was found with its bumper ripped off and the air bags deployed.

The two vehicles were registered to the same family.

Police say the driver of both of those vehicles then showed up in his own personal tow truck, with the intention of towing the two vehicles.

Police say the 54-year-old man had a cut on his forehead and reeked of alcohol and failed all of the field sobriety tests.

He was booked into the Whatcom County Jail on three counts of DUI.
