Life was imitating the Simpsons as most North Vancouverites slept last night.
Police caught a man driving drunk and doing doughnuts on the playing field at Grand Boulevard and East 15th.
The act of drunken vandalism has done significant damage to the field.
A North Vancouver RCMP officer was on routine patrol around 12:30 a.m. when he spotted the would-be Homer Simpson in an older model Ford Bronco driving on the field and doing doughnuts. The constable caught the 22-year-old North Vancouver man as he tried to pull onto Grand Boulevard. In addition to a 90-day roadside suspension and a 30-day impoundment of his vehicle, the man is facing impaired driving and criminal mischief charges.
