A driver in Malaga was caught driving three times over the alcohol limit in 48 hours. The man, 34, of Columbian nationality is now under investigation for crimes against road safety.
The first incident took place in the early hours of Saturday, April 17, when the 092 Room of the Malaga Local Police received a call warning of a couple having an argument on public roads.
Officers attended the scene, located on Diego de Vergara Street, and interviewed the man and woman, who downplayed the argument and claimed nothing was happening. Officers noticed the man was showing signs of intoxication, although he told them he would leave with a friend.
Minutes later, however, officers travelling down Eugenio Gross Street saw the same individual behind the wheel of a Peugeot 206. The officers then activated the lights and sirens indicating him to pull over.
When the vehicle stopped the officers again confirmed that the driver was under the influence of alcohol, noticeable symptoms included hesitant speech, the smell of alcohol on his breath and a flushed face.
