Police officers from Ozorków (Łódź Voivodeship) stopped a drunk driver who was driving a car without a technical inspection. As it turned out, the man was well known to them. In the last 12 months, he has been sanctioned six times for drunk driving. – During the inspection, he changed to the passenger seat and stated that he was not driving – reports the police.
The incident took place on Thursday. While patrolling Łęczycka Street, the policemen from Ozorków noticed a car coming from the opposite direction. His driver was well known to them. – Officers associated him with the fact that he had his driving license taken for drunk driving. They turned back and held him for inspection. The man smelled of alcohol at once. The breathalyzer test showed that he had nearly 1.3 per mille in his body – says Commissioner Magdalena Nowacka from the Police in Zgierz. He adds: – A 35-year-old resident of the Zgierz district. During the inspection, he changed to the passenger seat and stated that he was not driving the car.
Six stops for drunk driving in a year
The detention of the 35-year-old was the third this year. Last year, police reported, he was arrested three times for drunk driving. – In addition to driving under the influence of alcohol, the man was also detained this year in connection with other proceedings – informs the policewoman.
For drunk driving, the 35-year-old faces up to two years in prison. The punishment may be higher, because cases against the man are pending in court for previous offenses.
