A drunk driver who caused an accident on Thursday night in Larnaca was then arrested for swearing at police and resisting arrest, a police report said.

According to the report, around 11pm Thursday, while police were investigating a traffic accident, the intoxicated 66-year-old driver of one of the vehicles involved refused to take a breathalyser test and started swearing at the traffic policemen.

He was summarily arrested, but he continued to swear at them, resisting arrest and refusing to enter the police car.

He was forcibly placed into the car and detained at the local police station.

The man will be charged and released on Friday, to appear court at a later date.
