Here’s something you won’t hear or read every day. Hopefully, anyway.

From the Calgary Sun:

Steve Anderson, who works part-time for the Fargo Park District as a Zamboni driver, was arrested for DUI after allegedly cleaning the ice while drunk during a high school girls’ hockey game Friday at the South Sports Arena, according to multiple reports.

Yes, you read that right. He was drunk, allegedly, while cleaning the ice.

It happened during a game between Davies High School and Williston High School, when fans noticed the driver hitting the boards while cleaning the ice. He was, they said in a call to local cops, driving erratically.

If you slammed the palm of your hand to your forehead, and shook your head in disappointment, you probably weren’t alone.
