On one of the streets of Bialystok, he cut down a lighting pole. He later tried to flee the scene. The man was stopped by another driver. It turned out that he was drunk and is a policeman “from the Podlasie garrison”. He had over two times the legal limit of alcohol in his system. He was charged in the prosecutor’s office, and the police initiated actions towards his dismissal from service.

The car was driven by a police officer. He is not from the Białystok poviat, but from the Podlasie garrison. He had more than two per mille of alcohol in his body – says senior aspirant Katarzyna Molska-Zarzecka from the Municipal Police Headquarters in Białystok.
