A Florida man was busted for driving drunk -- in his own front yard.

Dennis Jones’ neighbors called the cops after the Paisley man had allegedly crashed into trees outside his home while trying to back out of his driveway Tuesday morning, News4Jax.com reported.

He went on to get stuck in dirt close to his neighbor’s fence, according to a police report.

When police arrived on the scene they said the 57-year-old reeked of alcohol, was slurring his words and missing a lens on his glasses, News4Jax reported.

According to a police report, Jones copped to having downed “less than one pint of vodka” that morning.

He was taken into custody after a breathalyzer test showed alcohol in his system at more than three times the legal limit, police said.
