The uniformed officers determined with a breathalyzer that the man had consumed alcohol at around 0.9 parts per million, and began to draw up the necessary documents for the administrative violation.

The man was arrested immediately and taken to the district office.

Arriving on the spot, an operational team on duty made an inspection and seized the money.

Fast-track proceedings were initiated against the perpetrator.
