A man was caught driving drunk and in possession of offensive weapons on Wednesday evening in Larnaca.
Members of the Larnaca emergency response team stopped a car driven by a 53-year-old who had a 43-year-old female passenger for a check at 10.45pm.
They called traffic police officers to the spot who performed a breathalyser which gave an indication of 73μg, while a second test registered the driver at 92μg, more than four times the legal limit of 22μg.
During a search of the vehicle the officer found an 84cm long metal pipe and two knives with 12 and 15cm blades.
The driver was arrested on the spot.
