Giving false details to the guards isn't ever a good idea but a motorist who decided to take the chance ended up in the back of a Laois garda squad car and is facing a day out in court.
Laois Offaly Gardaí issued a statement after the driver of a black Volkswagen was stoped in a Laois village near the Tipperary border on Monday, June 29.
"Laois Roads Policing Unit on a checkpoint today (Monday) in Borris-in-Ossory stopped this vehicle where the driver gave false details to Gardaí. MORE BELOW PICTURE.

The driver arrested and charged to appear before Portlaoise District Court and the vehicle seized.
