Three Japanese nationals were left injured after the car they were traveling in crashed through a garden wall in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The driver, who is also Japanese, almost ploughed the car into a pool of an apartment block on Sukhumvit Soi 31 when he lost control of the vehicle at around 3.30am.
When emergency services arrived on the scene they administered first aid to the injured while police breathalysed the driver.
His alcohol blood level was found to be almost three times over the legal limit.
The unnamed expat was taken into custody pending further legal proceedings.
