VIENNA, Oct 18 (Reuters) An Austrian motorist too drunk to change a tyre phoned a police emergency number by mistake instead of the breakdown service and wound up losing his driving licence, police said today.

''He mixed up emergency service numbers,'' a police official in the central town of Andau told Reuters. ''On the phone it was clear he was highly intoxicated and we sent over a patrol car.

He doesn't need his vehicle now because we took his licence.'' REUTERS SKB ND1456
