A trail of damage has led to the arrest of a man who allegedly crashed into multiple cars while driving nearly four-times over the legal alcohol limit.
Police responded to reports of a Mitsubishi Triton colliding with a number of cars about 2.30am Sunday, in Hobart.
Following a trail of damage from Davey Street to Tolman's Hill, a silver Triton was found with what police described as "significant front end crash damage".
The car's owner, a 25-year-old man from Tolman's Hill, was taken into custody.
After undertaking breath analysis he was charged with numerous driving offences including failing to stop at a crash and driving under the influence.
The man returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.182 - nearly four-times the legal limit.
He was bailed to appear in Hobart Magistrates Court on October 6.
He was also issued with an immediate disqualification from driving for 24 months.
Police say they have identified several damaged vehicles.
However, if there are any further vehicles or damage not yet reported, police are ask those owners to come forward.
"Police continue to be dismayed at the risk-taking behaviour displayed by some motorists," a police spokesperson said.
"We remind drivers if they are in any doubt as to their suitability to drive, don't drive.
"This sort of inconsiderate and selfish behaviour can have tragic consequences."
