Officers from the Guardia Civil detained a 57 year old Spanish man at the weekend who was driving whilst six times over the maximum permitted limit of alcohol.
The incident occurred during the early hours of Saturday morning at a checkpoint set up on the N-332 as it passes through l’Alfàs del Pi.
The officers stopped the vehicle on account of the driver acting suspiciously and carried out a breath test. The first test reveals a positive result of 1.49 mg / l, and 1.62 mg / l in the second test, six times higher than the permitted maximum.
The man was arrested for crimes against road safety and brought before the courts in Benidorm.
