Man jailed for driving drunk

A 52-year-old man will be jailed for ten days and have his licence suspended for three months for driving drunk in July 2019, the Larnaca court decided on Friday.

According to police, on July 4 officers spotted the man driving at 4pm in the centre of town. They noticed him sliding to a halt at a red traffic light. When police approached the man’s car, they smelled alcohol on his breath, leading them to conduct an initial alcohol test, which showed a result of 134μg instead of the allowed 22μg.

The man was taken to the police station, where a second alcotest was conducted, showing a lower result of 115μg.
