In Szczecin, the police detained the bus driver for inspection. The man turned out to be intoxicated. He had close to the blood alcohol limit. However, the 52-year-old was so tired that he fell asleep during the police check.
On Monday morning (April 24), the police stopped the bus for inspection at ul. Rymarska in Szczecin. Five people were in the vehicle on their way to work. During the check, the police officer smelled alcohol on the driver.
“The sobriety test showed that the man had close to a per mille in his body. As it turned out, it was a huge dose for him, because during the inspection the driver fell asleep next to the police officers” – said the Municipal Police Headquarters in Szczecin in a press release.
Szczecin. Drunk bus driver arrested
A 52-year-old man was arrested. He will now appear in court for his irresponsible behavior.
Police officers remind us that despite their numerous appeals, there are still many people who get behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol. “Driving a vehicle both after consumption and intoxication is a huge threat to all road users” – appeal Szczecin police officers.
