The Mossos d'Esquadra charged the officers.
THREE national police officers in Barcelona were charged by the Mossos d’Esquadra for breaching curfew and drunk driving.
The regional police force, the Mossos d’Esquadra, stopped them when they were driving around the Eixample area of Barcelona at around 2am on Saturday, December 12.
The ARA newspaper reported that they were in a private vehicle but claimed that they were on duty. The National Police officer who was driving was given a breathalyser test which was positive.
National Police have opened an internal investigation which could result in disciplinary measures if it is confirmed that they were not on police business when they breached the curfew. They could also be fined for breaching curfew and driving while under the influence of alcohol.
