Jeremy Clarkson is back in the spotlight as he has drawn ire for a tweet which suggests he was drinking and driving.

In a post last weekend, Clarkson tweeted "One of the best drives of my life. Gravel road. M6. Sun going down. iPod playing Blind Faith. Beer in cup holder." While he doesn't actually say he was drinking, the tweet has caused a lot of condemnation.

In particular, the spokesperson for the Campaign Against Drinking and Driving (CADD) told The Huffington Post "He is a total and utter idiot with no responsibility." The spokesperson went on to say "He is aware that any publicity is good publicity and he is simply attempting to get his name in the newspapers again."

Of course, this isn't the first time Clarkson has been in trouble for drinking and driving. In 2008, Top Gear aired an episode where Clarkson and James May where drinking while driving to the North Pole. That was perfectly legal but a number of viewers complained about it.
