ADELAIDE, Autralia – An unlicensed driver was busted for trying to drive his car with a pair of locking pliers. Cops in Adelaide, Australia pulled the 38-year-old over during Monday morning's rush hour because of two blown-out tires.

But they were shocked to find his vehicle didn't actually have a steering wheel - and he was controlling his ride by turning the shaft with the Vise-Grip.

He was arrested and charged with driving without proper documents and under the influence of methamphetamine and marijuana. He also faces charges of driving without due care, driving in a dangerous manner, driving while unregistered, uninsured and breaching his bail conditions.
