A man who drove up to a police station drunk was arrested and detained on Sunday evening.

The man, a 45-year-old resident of Xylophagou arrived at the Xylophagou police station shortly before 8pm on other business.

As he smelled strongly of alcohol he was asked to take a preliminary breathalyser test. The result indicated an alcohol level at 108μg compared to 22μg, which is the legal limit.

After it emerged that he was also not insured and the car had been taken out of circulation in August 2016 and had no MOT, the 45-year-old was taken to the Famagusta police station and took another test which showed that the alcohol level was actually as high as 132μg.

He was subsequently arrested and detained.
