We now have exclusive video of a bust of a man for driving a big rig on local highways drunk. Really drunk.

A big rig trucker was caught on camera drunk at three to four times the legal limit. Troopers pulled the evidence, beer from the cab of an 18-wheeler. And troopers say this guy drove that tractor- trailer incredibly drunk.

"Right now, you're at .32 which is actually 4 times the legal limit," said the trooper.

"Really?" the driver responded.

"Four times the legal limit. .08 is the legal limit," the trooper said.

Another video was just released by the Highway Patrol, showing a trucker stopped last month driving recklessly eastbound on the turnpike in Erie county near Milan. 

Michael Craycraft was driving something so big alongside you and troopers found he was really smashed.

"And you only had 3 beers?," the trooper asked.

"Yes," Craycraft said.

"You had more than three beers," the trooper said. "Even without this I can tell."

Despite that, Craycraft pleaded not guilty. Meanwhile, his commercial driver's license was immediately suspended. Troopers say this marks his third drunk driving case. Yet, he's driving a truck and getting busted like that.
