Police officers on the M6 reported seeing the articulated truck "weaving between lanes" on the M6 at Junction 12.
In a tweet posted shortly after 4am, the Twitter account for Central Motorway Police Group - made up of officers from Staffordshire Police and West Midlands Police - said: "Officers on the M6 J12 observed this articulated truck weaving between lanes."
"Vehicle stopped and the driver arrested for drink driving. 3.5 times over the drink drive limit"
The officers also shared a photo of the breath test readings taken at the roadside, showing results of 126 and 124 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.
The limit in England is 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.
