Drunk driver arrested

On Sunday, May 14, while driving her car during her free time, a policewoman noticed a Kia driver in Lipki Wielkie who was unable to keep a straight track. Suspecting that he might be under the influence of alcohol, as soon as the opportunity arose, the policewoman cut him off and took the keys, and called a patrol to the place.

Her suspicions were confirmed after a breathalyzer test. The 35-year-old driver had almost three times the legal limit of alcohol in his system. His driving license has been suspended and the man will be responsible for driving while intoxicated, Jaroszewicz informs.

The driver faces a heavy fine, loss of driving license and imprisonment for up to two years.
