As it turned out, the 17-year-old behind the wheel was drunk. He had half a permille of alcohol in his body and did not have a driving license.

It also turned out that the quad bike did not belong to any of the teenagers. They took it from a friend without his knowledge or consent.

They will answer like adults

The young men were detained and placed in police custody. Both were charged with stealing a quad bike, and the driver was additionally charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

– Due to the fact that they are over 17 years of age, both of them will be held responsible for committing a punishable act as adults. They face up to five years in prison – said Agnieszka Borowska, spokeswoman for the District Police Headquarters in Sokołów Podlaski.
