A suspected drunk driver found himself none the wiser after attempting to hide in a Nativity scene after crashing his car, police said.

Officers responding to the collision early Saturday in Tadcaster, England, reported finding the man inside of the Christmas display.

The North Yorkshire Police Department later tweeted out a photo of the driver's crashed Mini Cooper and the story of his failed escape, sparking a field day for snarky Twitter users.

Yorkshire Roads Policing Group Sgt. Paul Cording also got in on the pun play with a clever tweet that referenced the three wise men's gifts: "'Gold' star to my @NYorksRPG colleagues as one 'myrrh' drink driver with no (frankin)'cense' is taken off the road."

Police said the driver was arrested at the scene after failing a roadside breath test.
