Personal standards FAIL

It looks like we've got ourselves a classic case of do as I say, not as I do in Tokyo:
A senior Tokyo police official tasked with keeping the city's roads clear of drunk drivers has been arrested for driving under the influence, police said on Tuesday.

The deputy inspector, on his way home from a camping site, was caught late on Monday after bumping into another car and veering off the road, said a police official in Ibaraki.

"He smelled of alcohol and he couldn't walk straight," the official said.

Local media said the arrested official had been in charge of a campaign to stop drunk driving, handing out stickers to bars and restaurants around the city.
Huh. I guess they didn't have any of those stickers at the camp site where he'd been drinking. Oh well, live and learn, right? I mean, the whole losing your job and being publicly humiliated thing is probably quite the learning experience.
