OXFORD, Ohio (CBS/AP) Looking for the definition of irony? Ask Breathalyzer man.

Oxford, Ohio police say a 20-year-old man in a Breathalyzer costume found himself blowing into one after officers stopped him for allegedly driving the wrong way with no headlights on a one-way street Halloween night.

Police say they found an open container and a partial case of beer in the front seat and beer in the trunk when they stopped James P. Miller, of Cincinnati.

Miller was arrested and blew a 0.158 percent blood-alcohol level on a Breathalyzer test, according to police. That's close to double the state's legal limit for driving, which is .08.

Police say Miller was cited on charges including operating a vehicle while intoxicated, underage possession of alcohol, having an open container and a fake ID -- and, oh yeah -- going the wrong way on a one-way street.

Miller had no comment when reached at home Wednesday.
