An emergency doctor in Sliven was caught with 1.22 per mille during a drug test this morning.

He was traveling to work in his personal car from Stara Zagora when he was stopped by the police for a routine check.

"I don't feel like I've been drinking. I went out last night, I slept and that's it. I won't have slept for 8 hours," said the medic.

He was taken to the hospital for a blood sample, BNT reported.
