CHATHAM-KENT, Ontario, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Police in Ontario said a man is facing a careless driving charge after allegedly trying to solve a newspaper puzzle while behind the wheel.

Investigators said an officer noticed a man with a newspaper on the steering wheel of his Ford F-150 around 9:45 a.m. Wednesday on Highway 401 in Chatham-Kent, The Winsor (Ontario) Star reported Friday.

The man was so engrossed in his newspaper puzzle that it took him more than a minute to realize he was being pulled over, police said.
