GLOBAL ONE NEWS (G1) — (Here’s another reason to stay away from drugs kids.

Police arrested a man in the U.K. on suspicion of drug-driving after he crashed his car into a ditch.

But get this — he told police he “swerved to avoid an octopus.”

After swerving, authorities said he did a “slow roll” into a ditch.

Paramedics arrived on the scene but the man wasn’t injured— just filled with a flashback of his encounter with an octopus.

Well, you can imagine how this story goes — police promptly arrested him on suspicion of driving under the influence and hauled him off to jail where he reportedly still remains.

Apparently, octopuses are common in the British waters, but not on the streets.

In fact, officials said the octopus would have had to crawl nearly four miles through hilly terrains to end up on the road.

People on social media had some fun with one tweeting, “A case for the Cephala Plod.”

Another wrote,  “The car lost control and went into a squid?”
