Metro Digital Police say the man drove for some distance with the crossword across his wheel before noticing that he was being asked to pull over.

An Ontario man is looking for solutions after he was caught filling in a newspaper crossword puzzle while driving on Wednesday morning.

The driver of a red Ford pickup had allegedly spread a newspaper across his steering wheel and was filling in the rows of his crossword when he was spotted by an officer patrolling Hwy. 401 near Chatham-Kent.

He was reportedly so engrossed in his puzzle that it took him more than a minute to notice the police cruiser driving beside him.

When he did finally spot the officer, he pulled over.

Daniel Irons, a 54-year-old St. Thomas man, has been charged with careless driving.
