MINEOLA, N.Y., Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Authorities in New York state say a man was arrested for driving while intoxicated while trying to drive from a hearing for an identical charge.

Michael Nolan, 59, of Freeport appeared Tuesday in Nassau County court in Mineola on an aggravated-DWI charge from August and court officers noticed he smelled of alcohol and seemed unsteady during the status conference, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

The district attorney asked a police officer to follow Nolan when he left the courthouse and he was pulled over after climbing into his 2008 Toyota Tacoma and driving a few feet down the road.

Nolan was arrested on a DWI charge.
