There's a video lighting up the interwebs of a fellow who may be the drunkest drunken driver ever witnessed. How blotto is he? He lies down in a lane of the northbound (and active) Costa Mesa (55) Freeway at what appears to be near the 5 Freeway interchange in Santa Ana/Tustin-ish—in broad daylight! He has to be dragged away from harm by a California Highway Patrol officer. The CHP was alerted to Mr. Drunky McDrunkenstein by a following driver who noticed a car going extremely slow and hitting the side walls of the 55. The “oh no's” by the person who recorded this on a cell phone are priceless.
