A man from Maine allegedly punched himself in the face to get out of a sobriety test, according to a report Friday.

Brian Fogg, 27, allegedly punched himself in the face so hard he started to bleed, believing it would get him out of a sobriety test, reported the New York Post. Police found Fogg’s car stuck in a ditch on Jan. 13, reported WGME. When police tried to administer the breathalyzer, Fogg punched himself in the face three times.

Due to his injuries, cops ended up tending to his bleeding face, and Fogg skirted the sobriety test.

A breathalyzer test cannot be administered if there is blood in the mouth since it can pick up on inaccuracies, Sergeant Matthew Cook told the PenBay Pilot.

Fogg is charged with operating under the influence, falsifying criminal evidence, and criminal mischief. He was later released on bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on March 9.
