A man was arrested in Paralimni on Saturday night and later found to have been driving six times over the limit, police said.
The 46-year-old Paralimni resident was driving in the town when he was pulled over and given a breathalyser test in which he came up with 118mg of alcohol. When he was taken to the Ayia Napa police station, a blood test confirmed a level of 132mg as opposed to the legal 22mg.
Meanwhile, in Paphos, a woman aged 39 was arrested after she refused a breathalyser test following an accident Saturday afternoon in Coral Bay, Paphos. The woman was driving with another female passenger, 45, when she lost control of her car, hit a mini-bus and ended up on the pavement.
The bus driver and the passenger were taken to hospital where the former was kept in for precautionary reasons. The 45-year-old was treated for minor injuries and discharged.
Police said the car driver was asked to do a breathalyser test because she appeared to be under the influence but she refused. She was arrested and taken to Peyia police station.
