Police in the western city of Bochum said the driver's details seemed to be correct when he told them who he was -- until their records showed the man matching his description was registered as having a glass eye. A torch beam shone in face soon disproved this, however.
"His eye responded to stimulus. So then he said he used to have a glass eye, but didn't any more," said a Bochum police spokesman.
"It seems he was impersonating someone he knew well.
A search uncovered the man's true identity, and that he had already lost his license for a previous offence.
