A wanted man was arrested by gardai last night after he was caught drink-driving in Co Waterford last night.

Gardai set up checkpoints across the country last night where hundreds of cars were checked for drink-drivers.

The man who was "unlawfully at large" tried to avoid detection by giving a fake name to gardai.

He had previously been disqualified from driving and was taken into custody.
