"He was right in the middle of the road," a police spokesman city of Schwerin told Britain's Sky News. "The officers couldn't quite believe it when they saw the results of the breath test. That's a life-threatening figure."

The legal blood alcohol limit in Germany is 0.05 percent. The man in the wheelchair tested at 0.5 percent, police said.

The 31-year-old man was technically a pedestrian, so he will not be charged with a driving offense, police said.

"But he is facing some sort of punishment. It's just not clear yet what exactly that will be," the police spokesman told Sky News.
