ALINGSAS, Sweden, Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Swedish police said a truck driver was stopped for drunken driving twice within the space of a few hours.

Police said the Estonian truck driver was stopped Monday at a checkpoint outside of Alingsas and he was found to have empty beer cans in the cab and a blood alcohol content over the legal limit for driving, TheLocal.se reported Friday.

The man's driver's license was revoked and he was issued a $620 fine, police said.

Police said officers responding to a report of a truck driving erratically later the same evening pulled over the same driver for a second time and his blood alcohol content was again found to be over the limit.

The driver allegedly told police he had consumed three more cans of beer since his first encounter with police and he did not think the alcohol consumption negatively affected his driving.

The driver was charged with aggravated drunken driving and for driving without a license.
