Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Ever heard of a breath mint?

A Texas man who was stopped by Fayette County Sheriff's deputies for his erratic driving allegedly drank men's cologne to cover up the scent of alcohol while he was being pulled over.

John David Conwill, 42, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance after deputies found drugs in his vehicle. Conwill had allegedly already been involved in a hit-and-run accident prior to the traffic stop and additional charges are likely pending.

Deputy Randy Thumann and his K-9 partner, Lobos, assisted deputies during the stop.

"Lobos alerted on the vehicle which resulted in the discovery of dangerous drugs and open containers of alcoholic beverages," said Lt. David Beyer with the Fayette County Sheriff's Office. Conwill was in possession of prescription medications.

The brand of cologne that Conwil was chugging is still a mystery.
