A man slathered in gold spray paint was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence Wednesday after he hit three cars in the Berkeley area, authorities said.
An off-duty police officer spotted the 21-year-old driver and followed him to an offramp, where a wheel fell off his car, forcing him to pull over.
"We received a description of the suspect as being 'gold,' " the California Highway Patrol said in a statement.
The officer approached the vehicle and realized the description was spot-on: The man was covered head to toe in gold, and his steering wheel was covered in patches of paint.
The man was arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run and driving under the influence.
