Wake ’n’ bake

A man was arrested after slamming his Chevy Blazer it another car on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway on March 11 — and then cops discovered that he was high as a kite on the wacky weed.

Officers responding to the crash near Atlantic Avenue noticed that the 48-year-old driver had watery and bloodshot eyes. Closer inspection revealed a familiar stench popularized in the Lynyrd Skynyrd song, “Ooh, That Smell.” Eventually, a bag of pot and a spent joint were found, too.

The man was arrested.

Where: Atlantic Avenue and Hicks Street
