A Czech fugitive with a European arrest and surrender warrant has been arrested in Velez-Malaga.
THE 34-year-old was arrested after threatening another man over a debt, when the police were called after an argument broke out.
After identifying the suspect they verified a European warrant had been issued by his own country for driving under the influence of ‘an addictive substance’.
The detainee drove a vehicle in the town of Kamenice in Prague under the influence of alcohol while speeding.
The Praha-Vychod District Court had requested a one-year prison term.
The fugitive, together with the National Police report, has been made available to the Central Investigating Court of the National High Court.
